To Ponder

“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease–for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning! Great is Your faithfulness!” Lamentations 3:22-23. If sin is so exceedingly sinful–so contrary to, and displeasing to God–then surely His patience is exceedingly great, His goodness is exceedingly rich, and His longsuffering is exceedingly marvelous–even such as to cause astonishment! We are all living monuments of God’s goodness and patience! It is of the Lord’s mercies that all of us are not altogether and utterly consumed–and that in eternal Hell! Such is the power of His patience, the infiniteness of His mercy and compassion, and the riches of His unsearchable grace! (Ralph Venning, “The Plague of Plagues!” 1669)
