Daily devotional from the writing of James Smith.
James Smith, The Pastor’s Morning Visit 1840
This glorious, astonishing object!
“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world!” Gal 6:14
The cross of Christ is the Christian’s glory! It embraces the whole doctrine of salvation by grace, and is viewed by the Christian as . . .
the foundation of his hope,
the object of his faith;
the end of the law;
the antidote of his misery;
the center of truth;
the mirror, in which Jehovah displays His perfections;
the key which opens the gates of the celestial paradise;
the storehouse of eternal wisdom;
the mystery of incarnate love;
the destruction of death;
the gate to everlasting life;
the object of the angels wonder;
the cause of the devil’s everlasting confusion.
Beloved, let us fix our eyes and hearts upon this glorious, astonishing object!
