The Cross of Christ

Very much is needed today on the moral bearing of the cross, death and resurrection in practice, the Judgment Seat of Christ, and all these eternal, moral, and inevitable issues, from all of which the soul would prefer to turn aside. It prefers things mental, intellectual, expository, rather than that which affects the conscience and the claims of God—in a word, the cross of Christ, and yet that cross was ever and always His own objective; the one thing in glad obedience to the Father’s will that dominated His whole being and regulated His entire pathway here. He truly despised the shame.
