This morning I took Andrew Bonar’s, Heavenly Springs (the inspiration for the name of this blog) with me on my way to work. I was moved by a tiny passage that captures how magnificent a salvation we have. Where would we be without the atoning blood of Jesus? God only knows.
“Christ needed the storm on the Lake of Galilee that He might show how His single word could quiet it. He needed a troubled conscience that He might show how His atoning blood could calm and quiet it. And He needed a great and guilty sinner in order to show the power of the atonement and the riches of His grace.”
