Secure Near Christ

“This city of refuge had very large suburbs around it, extending out to one-half mile from the city walls, and was used for grazing the cattle of the priests, and approximately one-half of this area was used for fields and vineyards. Now, no sooner did the man reach the outside of the city, the suburbs, than he was safe; it was not necessary for him to get within the walls, but the suburbs themselves were sufficient protection. Learn, therefore, that if you just touch the hem of Christ’s garment, you shall be made whole; if you only lay hold of him with ‘faith as small as a mustard seed,’ with faith which is scarcely believing, but is truly believing, then you are safe. ‘A little genuine grace ensures the death of all our sins.’ Get within the borders; grab hold of the hem of Christ’s garment, and you are secure.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
