My Substitute

When it comes to the question of what Christ suffered as my substitute, I must leave it to God. Never could I, in the measure of my little mind, conceive in the smallest degree what He suffered when that cry broke from Him, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?" No; there I must bow my head and adore.
"God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son." God's gift of His Son is the setting forth of His glory throughout eternity. When He is seen on the throne, we shall never lose the thought that, because God used the personal glory of His Son to give weight to the sacrifice, we enter into glory. It is most important ever to remember that we are saved sinners. I could not be in heaven if I forgot when there that I am a saved sinner, forgot the power of the precious blood to wash away every spot of sin. It would not be the heaven of Scripture if I could not there speak about the love and mercy that had cleansed me.
