No Gospel for the Self-Righteous

“Some of you may say, ‘You seem to think us a bad lot’ —and so I do. Others exclaim, ‘How can you talk to us in this way? We are a honest, moral, and upright people.’ If so, then I have no gospel to preach to you. You may go elsewhere if you will, for you may get moral sermons in scores of chapels if you want them; but I am come in my Master’s name to preach to sinners, and so I will not say a word to you Pharisees except this— By so much as you think yourselves righteous and holy, by so much shall ye be cast out of God’s presence at last. Your sentence will be eternal banishment from the presence of him who hath said to every repenting sinner, ‘I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions, and will not remember thy sins.’”

—Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
