Jottings – True Consolation

Consolation can be found nowhere save in Christ.

Commenting on Philippians 2:1 ~

“Consolation is the dropping of a gentle dew from heaven on desert hearts beneath. True consolation, such as can reach the heart, must be one of the choicest gifts of divine mercy; and surely we are not erring from sacred Scripture when we avow that in its full meaning, consolation can be found nowhere save in Christ, who has come down from heaven, and who has again ascended to heaven, to provide strong and everlasting consolation for those whom he has bought with his blood.”

 

C. H. Spurgeon, “Consolation in Christ,” in The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Sermons, Vol. 7. Originally preached on December 2, 1860. (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1861), 1.
