DESPISING GRACE

21 Oct

“Let a king who of grace sends out to his rebellious people an offer of pardon if they accept it by such a day, yet beheads or hangs those that come not in for mercy until the expiry time be past, so Christ Jesus has set the sinner a day–a day of salvation—an acceptable time, but he who will not come and goes on in rebellion beyond that time, is liable to come off with the loss of all his soul.
To slight grace, to despise mercy, and to stop the ear when God speaks…so much to our profit is a great provocation. He offers, He calls, He woos, He invites, He prays, He beseeches us, in this His day of grace. He has provided us with the means of reconciliation himself. This despising must needs be provoking.
—-John Bunyan “The Jerusalem Sinner Saved.”
