The value of the Gospel

Great words for Easter:

The gospel is so precious a thing that, if it is to be bought, the whole world could not pay for it. And therefore if bought at all, it must be without money and without price! It cost the Lord Jesus his blood – what have you to offer? What? Do you imagine that you can buy it with a few paltry works? God himself must become a man and bleed and die to bring pardon and eternal life to sinners! And do you thin that your tears, bending your knees, gifts of money, and emotions of your heart can  purchase this unpurchaseable blessing? Oh, believe, because it is so rich, it must be given away if it is to belong to us!

C.H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
