Spurgeon

Charles Spurgeon "Grace moreover, sits on the throne because it has established itself thereby right. There is no injustice in the grace of GOD. GOD is as just when he forgives a believer as when he casts a sinner into hell. I believe in my own soul that there is as much and as pure a justice in the acceptance of a soul who believes in CHRIST as there will be in the rejection of those souls who die impenitent and are banished from JEHOVAH's presence. The sacrifice of CHRIST has enabled GOD to "be just, and [also] the justifier of him which believeth in JESUS" (Romans 3:26). He who knows the word substitution and can give its right meaning will see that there is nothing due to punitive justice from any believer, seeing that JESUS CHRIST has paid all the believer's debts. Now GOD would be unjust if HE did not save those for whom CHRIST vicariously suffered, for whom HIS righteousness was provided, and to whom it is imputed. Grace is on the throne by conquest, and it sits there by right."

This is taken from the book I am reading. "The power in Prayer" by Spurgeon. I was just so taken back by the truth laid in this small paragraph that I had to post it. Hope you love it as much as I have.
