The Lord is sending you into captivity for a purpose – Charles Spurgeon

I may be addressing some person here who is in great distress under conviction of sin. You despair because the Lord is bringing your sin to remembrance, but indeed, there is no cause—the Lord is sending you into captivity for a purpose. You are being shut up by the Law of God that you may be set at liberty by Christ! You are being stripped in order that you may be clothed! And you are being emptied that you may be filled! If you could see the end from the beginning, you would rejoice that you are made to know the burden of sin, for so shall you be driven to the Cross to find rest from your load! This sorrow shall be the death of your pride and self-righteousness. By this way the Lord is working out for you “a future and a hope.” When clean divorced from self, you shall be wedded to Jesus and dowried with His salvation! – Charles Spurgeon
