'Grace and Truth'
Excerpt from 'Grace and Truth': Under Twelve Different Aspects'The law was given by Moses: grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.' The law showed what man ought to be. Christ showed what man is, and what God is. The law was given but grace and truth came. Calvary tells out fully what man's true state is, what Gods truth is, and what grace means. The law is what I ought to be to God: Grace tells what God is for me. The first word of law is 'Thou;' the first of grace is 'God,' so loved; but it is grace through truth. God has investigated everything, nothing has been looked over. The greatest sin that any man could possibly commit has been committed, namely, the murder of Gods Son. At the same time the greatest grace of God has been manifested.Man by nature likes neither grace nor truth. He is satisfied neither with perfect justice nor perfect goodness. If John the Baptist comes in righteousness he is hated, and men say he is too harsh, and not human, but hath a devil. If Christ comes in love. He is taunted with being a friend of sinners. So when the righteous requirements of God's law are preached, many people are apt to turn and say, 'Oh yes, but that is too strict; you must allow a little margin for our imperfection.' God says, make no provision for the flesh. Alas! it will take far too much, but allow it nothing. When a sanctified walk, separated from the world and all its belongings, is insisted on, a certain class are sure to call this legal preaching. And on the other hand when the grace of God is preached, man's wisdom makes it out to be toleration of evil and lawless license.Let us suppose that a convict, who had just finished his term of penal servitude, wished to lead an honest life. He comes to a man who has a large jewellery establishment, and who requires a night-watchman.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
