Quote of the Day #164 - Charles Spurgeon


A quote from Charles Spurgeon on the cross:
The cross is the focus of all human history—I was almost going to say it is the center of the life of God, if such a thing can be. All the ages meet in Calvary. Jesus is the central Sun of all events.

O, gaze again, and marvel more and more that God should put Himself into the place of His offending creature, and in the Person of His dear Son should offer to eternal justice a compensation for the insults which sin had cast upon law and rule! There is no greatness in Heaven or earth if it is not here in the bleeding flesh of Jesus, the Son of God! All else is dwarfed into nothingness in His Presence
~Charles Spurgeon (The Great Mystery Of Godliness 786.700)
