Morning and Evening

For the evening of March 27th
by Charles H. Spurgeon

"And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs whichfall from their master's table." --Matthew 15:27

This woman gained comfort in her misery by thinking GREAT THOUGHTS OF CHRIST. The Master had talked about the children'sbread: "Now," argued she, "since Thou art the Master of thetable of grace, I know that Thou art a generous housekeeper, andthere is sure to be abundance of bread on Thy table; there willbe such an abundance for the children that there will be crumbsto throw on the floor for the dogs, and the children will farenone the worse because the dogs are fed." She thought Him onewho kept so good a table that all that she needed would only bea crumb in comparison; yet remember, what she wanted was to havethe devil cast out of her daughter. It was a very great thing toher, but she had such a high esteem of Christ, that she said,"It is nothing to Him, it is but a crumb for Christ to give."This is the royal road to comfort. Great thoughts of your sinalone will drive you to despair; but great thoughts of Christwill pilot you into the haven of peace. "My sins are many, butoh! it is nothing to Jesus to take them all away. The weight ofmy guilt presses me down as a giant's foot would crush a worm,but it is no more than a grain of dust to Him, because He hasalready borne its curse in His own body on the tree. It will bebut a small thing for Him to give me full remission, although itwill be an infinite blessing for me to receive it." The womanopens her soul's mouth very wide, expecting great things ofJesus, and He fills it with His love. Dear reader, do the same.She confessed what Christ laid at her door, but she laid fasthold upon Him, and drew arguments even out of His hard words;she believed great things of Him, and she thus overcame Him.SHE WON THE VICTORY BY BELIEVING IN HIM. Her case is an instanceof prevailing faith; and if we would conquer like her, we mustimitate her tactics.
