Wonders of Grace by Charles Spurgeon

Wonders of grace are God’s delight, he loves, for Jesus’ sake, to call unto himself the lowest of the low, and the vilest of the vile… Let us rest assured that Jesus still receives sinners, and that publicans and harlots enter into the kingdom of heaven before the self-righteous and captious.
It is very remarkable that in the pedigree of Christ there should be so many women with blotted characters; that there should be an incestuous Tamar, a harlot Rahab, an idolatrous Ruth, and an adulterous Bathsheba, so that Jesus Christ, the Savior of sinners, has descended his earthly parentage from the loins of sinners, and so is nearly akin to them. O the depths of the grace of God! How matchless is the condescension of the Redeemer!

From a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled “Rahab,” delivered July 21, 1872.
