In chapel today, the speaker brought to our attention this quote by Charles Spurgeon. Hell doesn't even cover our sins . . . ever. The only way we can escape our sin is through Christ and He chose us when we chose our sin. Thank you Lord for your Grace to me!
Oh! our monster sins, our horrible sins, our damnable sins!
Hell itself cannot put our sins away! There
are the devil and his angels for whom hell
was made, for whom the fire was first kindled,
and its pit first digged; but they are as great
sinners after these six thousand years as they
were when first they were cast down from heaven!
And so those lost ones whose spirits have
been in hell since the time of Noah's flood,
they are still sinners, and after all the ages
of suffering they have endured, not a sin less
is upon them now than there was at first!
Ah, dreadful thought!
If you are ever cast into hell, though ages
on ages may lapse, and the wrath of God be
poured out upon you to the uttermost, there
will never be the destruction of a single sin
or particle of a sin by it all.
Sin cannot be put away until the penalty is borne
to the end, and that can never be by finite man.
