A hymn we sing at Exodus says
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
And the evil one does tempt us to despair. He has fiery darts of accusation that aim for our hearts and minds to oppose the truth of the gospel. So, this hymn calls us to look to Jesus and follow Spurgeon’s instruction…
The devil tells you it is of no use for you to believe in Christ, there is not efficacy for you, you have sinned away your day of grace; tell him he is a liar, Christ has offered one sacrifice for sins for ever;and while a man lives beneath the covenant of mercy, where the gospel is sounded in his ears, there is efficacy in the atonement for ever. The atoning sacrifice has no limit in its merit, the salvation of some has not drained it of even the smallest degree of its power.
May the gospel of God’s overflowing grace be exceedingly sweet to you today.
