We Cannot Esteem Christ Enough

Spurgeon said:

"My Master has such riches that you cannot count them. You cannot guess them, much less can you convey their fullness in words. They are unsearchable! You may look, and search, and weigh, but Christ is a greater Christ than you think Him to be when your thoughts are at the greatest.

My Master is more able to pardon than you to sin, more able to forgive than you to transgress. My Master is more ready to supply than you are to ask, and ten thousand times more prepared to save than you are to be saved. Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. Your highest estimates will dishonor Him.

When you put the crown on His head, you will only crown Him with silver when He deserves gold. When you sing the best of your songs, you will only give Him poor, discordant music, compared with what He deserves. But Oh! Do believe in Him, that He is a great Christ, a mighty Saviour.

Great sinner, come and do Him honor by trusting in Him as a great Saviour. Come with your great sins, and your great cares, and your great wants! Come and welcome. Come to Him now, and the Lord will accept you, and accept you without upbraiding you."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, "The Unsearchable Riches of Christ," in Spurgeon’s Sermons, Vol. 9 (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1996), 259-260.
