If my heart condemns me God is greater then my heart.  For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  (1 John 3:20-21) An extract from a Spurgeon sermon… “Does not the Word of God

If my heart condemns me God is greater then my heart. 

For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  (1 John 3:20-21)

Christ is Greater than Our Sin

An extract from a Spurgeon sermon…
“Does not the Word of God command you to look to Christ? Great as your sins are, Christ is greater than they all. They are black; but his blood can wash thee whiter than snow. I know your sins deserve damnation; but Christ’s merits deserve salvation. It is true, the pit of hell is your lawful portion, but heaven itself is your gracious portion.

      What! is Christ less powerful than your sin? That cannot be! To suppose that were that to make the creature mightier than the Creator. What! is your guilt more prevalent with God than Christ’s righteousness? Can you think so little of Christ as to imagine that your sins can overwhelm and conquer him?

O man, your sins are like mountains; but Christ’s love is like Noah’s flood; it prevailed twenty cubits, and the tops of the mountains are covered. It is looking at sin and not looking to the Saviour that has made you doubt. You are looking to the second cause, and not to him who is greater than all.”

In summary: Christ is greater than our hearts – our salvation is greater than our feelings.
