God’s love shown through Christ’s substitution

“It is a strange thing that when men talk about the love of God, they show by every word that they utter that they have no conception at all of the depths of God’s love.

“If you want to find an instance of true gratitude for the infinite grace of God, do not go to those who think of God’s love as something that cost nothing, but go rather to those who in agony of soul have faced the awful fact of the guilt of sin, and then have come to know with a trembling wonder that the miracle of all miracles has been accomplished, and that the eternal Son has died in their stead.”

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.

  1. What a great quote! Thank you for posting this, I’ve never read it before. It’s crazy because out of the same mouth that we praise God with we also curse our brothers and sisters.
