God spared not the angels that sinned

THEN, is it not wonderful that he should spare us ? They were more noble in their nature, and more exalted in their station; yet when they sinned God did not spare them, but cast them down to hell. Nor would he have spared us, but for the method of his grace; by which his Son became our substitute, took our responsibility, came into our world, and acted as our surety. And when he appeared in this character, he was dealt with accordingly, he was not spared, therefore we read, "He spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all." Was not this wonderful, God would not spare his Son, that he might spare us; us who were his enemies, and who would have remained so for ever if he had not changed our hearts by his grace? Let us this day reflect upon the facts, " God spared not the angels that sinned," " He spared not his own Son," but he says of us, " I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him." O mystery of mercy! What depths of love, what heights of grace are here! My soul, adore the sovereignty, and eternally praise the distinguishing grace displayed !
  Amazing work of sovereign grace
That could distinguish rebels no I

    Our guilty treasons call'd aloud
b'or everlasting fetters too.
