The Deep Things of God

The Spirit of God in a man’s bosom searches the deep things of God, so as to lead him into a spiritual and experimental knowledge of them. What a depth in the blood of Christ-how it “cleanses from all sin,” – even millions of millions of the foulest sins of the foulest sinners!

What a depth in His bleeding, dying love, that could stoop so low to lift us so high!

What a depth in His pity and compassion to extend itself to such guilty, vile transgressors as we are!

What depth in His rich, free, and sovereign grace, that it should super-abound over all our aggravated iniquities, enormities, and vile abominations!

What depth in His sufferings-that He should have voluntarily put Himself under such a load of guilt, such out-breakings of the wrath of God-as He felt in His holy soul when He stood in our place to redeem poor sinners from the bottomless pit-that those who deserved hell, should be lifted up into the enjoyment of heaven!

One Comment on “The Deep Things of God

  1. The things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. [1Cor 2:11-14]
    One sure way to discern if a man truly knows the Lord is to inquire what he understands about the depth of the Atonement of Christ. The Blood of chrst can and does atone for the deepest and darkest sins. halleujeh!
