Thoughts on the Last Battle

From C.H. Spurgeon’s sermon “Thoughts on the Last Battle” 1 Cor. 15:56-57 “The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But, thanks be unto God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  

“The strength of sin is the law…The law will not abate one tittle of its stern demands.  …There is a curse but no provision made for pardon by the law. The law requires perfection and nothing short of it.  For every transgression the law will exact a punishment. ..The law speaks not of sin and mercy; but sin and punishment.  Mercy comes in the gospel. …I am God’s Justsice, stern and unflinching, I will not alter, I will not mitigate the penalty.  Christ has taken away the strength of sin in this respect, that he has removed the law. …Christ has removed the law in this sense, that he has completely satisfied it. The sting of death is sin, the strength of sin is the law, and Christ gives us the victory by taking the sting away, and removed the strength of sin by his perfect obedience.”

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.
