LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

The Gospel of Substitution - Spurgeon

The Gospel of Substitution

What a sight it was to see Him in the garden oppressed with our load of guilt till the bloody sweat was forced from Him! To see Him bearing that stupendous weight up to the Cross and there hanging in agonies of death, bearing the desertion of His Father and all the thick clouds of darkness that came of it—dying—the “Just for the unjust to bring us to God”! It was the Glory of Christ that He was there bereft of all Glory! Never can a more glorious thing be said of Him than that He, for our sakes, was obedient to death, even the death of the Cross! And this is the Gospel we preach, the Gospel of Substitution, that Jesus stood in the sinner’s place and bore in the sinner’s stead what was due to the Law of God on account of man’s transgression.

-Charles Spurgeon-

Janice: You are doing exactly what I hope all people who come here would do - read up on Spurgeon. He loved Jesus so much that, I believe, his ministry can help set people's hearts on fire in their own walk with Christ.

Hi Mark,

I just did a post on my blog tonight about how our Lord suffered for us and then I was checking my favorite blogs and see you did a blog on it too. Lately, I have been really thinking on how Christ died so dreadfully for us, His children. We are so undeserving of such love. He suffered so much for us, we have no right to complain about our sufferings, considering what he went through. I am so thankful He loved me that much.

It is difficult to add any words to Spurgeon's. He is so eloquent with the truth of the Word. As Rose said, "AMEN!"
