“The infinite God Himself gives Himself to you in the person of His dear Son” by Charles Spurgeon

“We are completely dependent upon the charity of God. Let us be glad, then, as we learn that there is no necessity in our spirit but what is abundantly provided for in the all-fullness of Jesus Christ.

You seek for a higher platform of spiritual attainments, you aim to conquer sin, you desire to be plentiful in fruit unto his glory, you are longing to be useful, you are anxious to subdue the hearts of others unto Christ; behold the needful grace for all this.

In the sacred armoury of the Son of David behold your battle-axe and your weapons of war; in the stores of him who is greater than Aaron see the robes in which to fulfil your priesthood; in the wounds of Jesus behold the power with which you may, become a living sacrifice.

If you would glow like a seraph, and serve like an apostle, behold the grace awaiting you in Jesus. If you would go from strength to strength, climbing the loftiest summits of holiness, behold grace upon grace prepared for you.

If you are straitened, it will not be in Christ; if there be any bound to your holy attainments, it is set by yourself.

The infinite God Himself gives Himself to you in the person of His dear Son, and He saith to you, “All things are yours.”

“The Lord is the portion of your inheritance and of your cup.” Infinity is ours.

He who gave us His own Son has in that very deed given us all things. Hath he not said, “I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt; open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it”?

–Charles H. Spurgeon, “All Fullness in Christ,” in The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Sermons, vol. 17 (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1871), 125–126.
