10 ways in which God in Christ is a God of love #7


Here’s the 7th abridged extract from Ebenezer Erskine’s 10 point sermon on 10 ways in which God in Christ is a God of love:

Ebenezer Erskine

7. God in Christ is a pitying God; he pities Christless and unbelieving sinners, and is loath at his very heart to give up with them: Hos. xi. 8. “How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? …Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.” It is like the pity of a fond mother to a sucking child, a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”
