Gospel-Driven Quote of the Week

“Now that the storm of the Almighty’s wrath has been discharged upon him who bore the burden of the world’s atonement, he has turned his throne of glory into a throne of grace, and cleared away from the pavilion of his residence, all the darkness which encompassed it.

“…he has turned his throne of glory into a throne of grace…”

The God who dwelleth there, is God in Christ; and the voice he sends from it, to this dark and rebellious province of his mighty empire, is a voice of the most beseeching tenderness. Good will to men is the announcement with which his messengers come fraught to a guilty world; and, since the moment with which it burst upon mortal ears from the peaceful canopy of heaven, may the ministers of salvation take it up, and go round with it among all the tribes and individuals of the species.”

Thomas Chalmers, Chalmers Select Works, vol. 4, “Sermon XIV: The Power of the Gospel”
