The crucifixion of Christ



(Archibald Alexander)

The truths which are exhibited in a clear and
strong light by the crucifixion of Christ, are
such as these:

1. The infinite evil of sin, which in order to
its pardon, required such a sacrifice.

2. The holiness and justice of God, which
would not allow sin to pass without full evidence
of the divine disapprobation, and His inflexible
purpose to visit it with deserved punishment.

3. The wisdom of God, in contriving a method
of salvation by which His own glory would be
promoted in the eternal salvation of hell-deserving
sinners. This wisdom is chiefly manifest in the
incarnation of the Son of God, by which the divine
and human natures are united in one person.

4. But the most wonderful exhibition of the cross
is the mercy of God, the love of God to sinners;
such love as never could have been conceived of,
had it not been manifest by the gift of His own Son!
