Jesus Is So Kind

I was encouraged last night as I was reading Spurgeon again in his Morning and Evening.

"Our poorest actions Jesus accepts; our deepest sorrow He feels; our slenderest wish He hears; and every transgression He forgives. Jesus is still our servant as well as our Friend and Master. What condescending patience it is when the Savior with much long-suffering bears the repetitive follies of His wayward disciples, day by day and hour by hour washing away the multiplied transgressions of His erring but still much-loved child! While we find comfort and peace in our Lord's daily cleansing, its legitimate influence upon us will be to increase our watchfulness and quicken our desire for holiness."

This so encourages me, because I see my sin, I see my follies, yet Jesus still loves me. It reminds me of the gospel, it rivets my affections on Christ, it makes me treasure Him and His work on my behalf. I need the gospel!
