Tell That Poor Wretch

“If you meet that poor wretch that thrust the spear into My side, tell him there is another way, a better way; of coming to My heart, if he will repent, and look upon Whom he has pierced and will mourn.

I will cherish him in that very bosom he has wounded; he shall find the blood he shed an ample atonement for the sin of shedding it.

And tell him from Me, he will put Me to more pain and displeasure by refusing this offer of My blood, than when he drew it forth.” – Benjamin Grosvenor (1675-1758) “The Temper of Jesus Christ towards His Enemies, and His Grace to the Chief of Sinners.”
