Grace Triumphs Death

I give them eternal life and they shall never perish; 
no one can snatch them out of my hand. John 10:28

The way to heaven is as free as the way to hell. In hell
there is an accuser, but in heaven there is no one to con-
demn. The only being in the universe of God who has
a right to judge the sinner is now exalted to be a Savior.
Amid the wonders and terrors of that throne, He is a
Savior, and He is sitting there in grace.

The Savior shall yet become the Judge, but judgement
waits on grace. Sin has reigned, and death can boast its
victories, but shall grace not have its triumphs too?

As surely as the sin of man brought forth death, the grace
of God shall bring eternal life to every sinner who be-
lieves. One sin brought death, but grace masters all sin.
If sin abounded, grace abounds far more. Grace is con-

Not at the expense of righteousness, but in virtue of it.
Righteousness requires the sinner's death, and yet grace
has intervened to give him life. Righteousness itself has
set grace upon the throne in order that the sinner may
have life: "That as sin has reigned unto death, even so
might grace reign, through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Sir Robert Anderson

Reader, what a glorious day of thanksgiving when a
sinner, who recognizes his condition, repents and
receives the grace that gives him eternal life!
