This is chapter 2 from The Gospel and its Ministry by Sir Robert Anderson. This is a beautiful chapter extolling the greatness of God’s grace against the backdrop of man’s great wickedness. I sat down and read this again. Then I sat down and read it again and decided that it is certainly worth sharing. I hope all of you enjoy it, and if you would like the book, it can be downloaded by clicking on the title in red at the beginning of this paragraph, or you can purchase a paper copy here.
“The Gospel of the glory of the blessed God!”¹
“Show me Thy glory, I beseech Thee,” was the prayer of Moses; and God answered, “I will make all My goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of Jehovah before thee, and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy” (Exodus 33:18, 19). God’s highest glory displays itself in sovereign grace, therefore it is that the gospel of His grace is the gospel of His glory.
