Kindness To A Stranger

Filed under: Uncategorized — cubsfan1980 @ 5:04 am

The blessed Jesus, from his free grace, unsought and unasked (John19:15, 17-18, Philippians 2:6-8) became surety, not for a friend, but for a strange. Be became one with us in nature, that he might become one with us in law. He took our place under the curse of the broken law (Galatians 3:13). He put his soul in our soul’s place to the fullest extent and then in our nature paid the debt, which all the angels of heaven could never have discharged. Oh, this was suffering indeed! Sin was as thoroughly punished as it was thoroughly pardoned. So all that is left for us to do is to fall down before this grace and to spend our days, as we will spend eternity, adoring this wonderful manifestation of divine glory (Revelation 1:5-6; 5:12).

-Charles Bridges on Proverbs 11:15
