Quote of the Day #121 - Richard Sibbes

A quote from The Bruised Reed, by Richard Sibbes:
In temptations it is safest to behold nothing but Christ the true brazen serpent, the true Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29). This saving object has a special influence of comfort to the soul, especially if we look not only on Christ, but upon the Father's authority and love in him. For in all that Christ did and suffered as Mediator, we must see God in him reconciling the world unto himself (2 Cor. 5:19).

What a support to our faith is this, that God the Father, the party offended by our sins, is so well pleased with the work of redemption! And what a comfort is this, that, seeing God's love rests on Christ, as well pleased in him, we may gather that he is as well pleased with us, if we be in Christ!
~Richard Sibbes (The Bruised Reed, Chapter 1)
