When Sinners Repent

“…can we fail to be moved with wonder today at this great message, that God in heaven rejoices–exults in joy like this human father receiving back his son–exults in joy like this human father receiving back his son–when sinners repent and turn to Him?  On less assurance than that of Jesus Christ HImself the thing were perhaps incredible.  But on that assurance shall we not take its comfort to our hearts?  We are sinners.  And our only hope is in one who loves sinners; and has come into the world to die for sinners.  Marvel, marvel beyond our conception; but, blessed be God, as true as marvellous.”  –B.B. Warfield “The Saviour of the World” (The Prodigal Son) (Banner of Truth) p. 31

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
