Gospel-Driven Quote of the Week

“The gospel not only offers salvation, which it might do though the salvation were afar off; but it brings salvation along with it to the lost sinner, Titus ii. 11, for the grace of God that bringeth salvation, hath appeared to all men. And God doth not stay the exhibiting of his Son to sinners, till they say they will take him, as we do sometimes the bringing out of meat to our friends; but as his voice reacheth their ears, his hand holds him forth, saying, Here he is for you, take him, ye must take him; as we do sometimes with our meat, holding it out in our hand to our friend, and telling him, and pressing him to eat.”

Thomas Boston, “The Gift of Christ to Sinners,” quoted in Gospel Truth, p. 205
