Quote of the Day #203 - J. C. Ryle

A quote from J. C. Ryle on the sinfulness of sin and the greatness of the atonement:
No proof of the exceeding sinfulness of sin, after all, is so overwhelming and unanswerable — as the sufferings and cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole doctrine of His substitution and atonement. Terribly black must that guilt be, for which nothing but the blood of the Son of God could make satisfaction. Heavy must that weight of human sin be, which made Jesus groan and sweat drops of blood in agony at Gethsemane and cry at Golgotha, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me!" (Matthew 27:46).
~J. C. Ryle (Holiness, Chapter: Sin)
