He Did Not Spare Even His Own Son!

“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32

“Our text tells of the gracious character of our loving God as interpreted by the gift of His Son.  And this, not merely for the instruction of our minds, but for the comfort and assurance of our hearts.  The gift of His own Son is God’s guarantee to His people of all needed blessings.  The greater includes the less;  His unspeakable spiritual gift is the pledge of all needed temporal mercies.  Note in our text four things which should bring comfort to every renewed heart.  The Father’s costly sacrifice. Our God is a giving God and no good thing does He withhold from them that walk uprightly.  The Father’s gracious design.  It was for us that Christ was delivered up; it was our highest and eternal interests that He had at heart.  The Spirit’s infallible inference.  The greater includes the less; the unspeakable Gift guarantees the bestowment of all other needed favors.  The comforting promise. Its sure foundation, its present and future scope, its blessed extent, are for the assuring of our hearts and the peace of our minds.  May the Lord add His blessing to this little meditation.”

Arthur W. Pink quoted from “Climbing the Heights”
