This Sinner’s Plee

1. I plead my need! as the Canaanite, Bartimaeus, the thief, and all who came to Him then.

2. I plead His lovingkindness and tender mercies! He delights to show mercy and is plenteous in mercy.

3. I plead His right to show mercy to whom He will! The leper cried, “Lord, if you will, you can make me whole.”

4. I plead His power over all my enemies! He has all authority in heaven and earth.

5. I plead His efficacious blood! “The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses us from all sin.”

6. I plead His command to repent and believe! He does not merely invite sinners to repent and believe the gospel, He commands us to come.

7. I plead compliance to His command! “Lord, I do believe, help thou mine unbelief.” “He that believeth on the Son, hath life.” I believe; therefore, I have life.

8. I plead rest only in His person and work! “Lord, we believe and are sure that Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
