He sees the nails and spear in every iniquity!

(Charles Spurgeon)

The heart of Christ became like a reservoir in the midst of the mountains. All the tributary streams of iniquity, and every drop of the sins of His people--ran down and gathered into one vast lake--as deep as Hell and as shoreless as eternity. All these met, as it were, in Christ's heart--and He endured them all!

Sin is horrible to a believer--because it crucified his Savior! He sees the nails and spear in every iniquity!

We cannot bear sin. When it is near us, we feel like a wretch chained to a rotting carcass--we groan to be free from the hateful thing.

A very little sin, as the world calls it--is a very great sin to a true Christian!

Grace Gems would like to recommend a short 32 page booklet called "Story Time Doctrine"
Story Time Doctrine is a children's book series that seeks to teach children orthodox Christian doctrine through a combination of story, discussion and catechism.
Story Time Doctrine is much more than fun stories or pretty illustrations. Every story parallels Christian doctrines, so that as children connect with the stories in this book, the doctrines will be communicated on a level they can understand.
Volume 1 is intended for early elementary school students (Pre-K - 3), but may be enjoyed throughout all of a child's elementary school years.

  You may READ it freely online here: Story Time Doctrine.

  You may PURCHASE the book from Amazon here: Story Time Doctrine.
