Christian and the Giant Despair

Our series on The Pilgrim's Progress continues as Christian and Hopeful are captured by the Giant Despair and are thrown into the dungeons of his Doubting Castle. While in the dungeon, they are beaten and neglected until they fear the taking of their own lives. So is the danger of despair in the life of any Christian. Yet, Christian and Hopeful are shook out of their desperate state by the realization that God has granted unto them "exceedingly great and precious promises" (2Pet. 1:4). It is a wonderful reminder of how sweet and awesome is the mercy of God. Spurgeon wrote:
His mercy is so great that it forgives great sins to great sinners, after great lengths of time, and then give great favors and great privileges, and raises us up to great enjoyments in the great heaven of the great God.
