A fullness of blessings!


The Daily Spurgeon wishes you a joyous Resurrection Sunday! We'll see you again on Tuesday, March 24.

There is a fullness of atoning efficacy in his blood, for “the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sin.” There is a fullness of justifying righteousness in his life, for “there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.” There is a fullness of divine providence in his plea, for “he is able to save to the uttermost them that come unto God by him; seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” There is a fullness of victory in his death, for "through death he destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil."

There is a fullness of efficacy in his resurrection from the dead, for by it we are "begotten again to a lively hope.” There is a fullness of triumph in his ascension, for “when he ascended up on high he led captivity captive, and received gifts for men.” There is a fullness of blessings unspeakable, unknown; a fullness of grace to pardon, of grace to regenerate, of grace to sanctify, of grace to preserve and of grace to perfect.
