Sunday Meditation – Arms Open Wide

“He was nailed to the cross with his arms open wide to show the freeness his merit would be bestowed upon us if we come. O how heartily He will receive us into his arms! He offers all freely; yea, He comes in the word of the gospel with the blood running down his face, tears upon his cheeks, fresh wounds in his hands and feet, and blood still flowing from his side, to entreat you to accept his gracious offer of reconciliation. Will you love sin more than grace, and darkness more than light? Will you shut your eyes to Him but open them wide for the pleasures of the flesh? Will you run the hazard of death in the day of judgment? Will you despise Him and reject his grace? Will you abide in sin until the day of judgment?”

John Bunyan
