Behold, I am vile…” (Job 40: 4).

“One cheering word, poor lost sinner, for thee!  You think you must not come to God because you are vile.  Now, there is not a saint living on earth but has been made to feel that he is vile.  If Job, and Isaiah, and Paul were all obliged to say, ‘I am vile,’ oh, poor sinner, wilt thou be ashamed to join in the same confession?  If divine grace does not eradicate all sin from the believer, how dost thou hope to do it thyself?  And if God love His people while they are yet vile, dost thou think thy vileness will prevent His loving thee?

Believe on Jesus, thou outcast of the world’s society!  If, now, with all thy heart, thou wilt  say, ‘I am vile, wash me,’ thou shalt be washed now.  Oh, may the Holy Spirit give thee saving faith in Him who receives the vilest!”

–Charles Spurgeon
