What Are Those Wounds? - Spurgeon

O Lord Jesus, what are those wounds in your side,and in your hands?

He answers--"These I endured when suffering for you.
How can I forget you?
I have graven you upon the palms of my hands.
How can I ever fail to remember you?
On my very heart the spear has written your name."

Look at Jesus, dead, buried, risen, and then say,
"He loved me, and gave himself for me!"

There is no restorative for a sinking faith like
a sight of the wounded Saviour.
Look, soul, and live by the proofs of his death!
Come and put your finger, by faith, into the print of the nails,
and these wounds shall heal you of unbelief.
The wounds of our Lord are the tokens of his love.

Charles Spurgeon

Thank you Doug, the words of Spurgeon live on even though he is silent here now. This is because his topic was one that lives even though he dosen't,here.

No one could ever justly accuse the Lord of not loving us. The cross proved that love.

Thanks for the CHS quote!
