Such was Christ on earth. One was with God. The sinner, who would have been ashamed to show himself to man, could hide his face in the bosom of Jesus, sure of not finding a reproof there. Not a sin allowed, (if there had been, confidence would not have been established, because He would not have revealed the Holy God,) but a heart which, through the midst of the sin, received the sinner in His arms,—and it was the heart of God!
Christ was all that in this world, and He was much more than my poor pen could tell,—and man rejected Him!
The measure of my privilege is, that I am in Christ-the measure of my responsibility is, that Christ is in me.
