Strana 126 - For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever. Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren. For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me ? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.
Strana 109 - So I saw in my dream, that just as Christian came up with the cross, his burden loosed from off his shoulders, and fell from off his back, and began to tumble, and so continued to do, till it came to the mouth of the sepulchre, where it fell in, and I saw it no more. Then was Christian glad and lightsome, and said, with a merry heart, " He hath given me rest by his sorrow, and life by his death.
Strana 22 - Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Strana 30 - ... coming, this one on whose step, as He moves through history, the eyes of all the ages are fastened, — is it possible that He is the conqueror of the enemy and the Deliverer of the Soul ? He comes out of the enemy's direction. The whole work of the Saviour has relation to and issues from the fact of sin. If there had been no sin there would have been no Saviour. " He came not to call tne righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Strana 28 - And we may see how the union of Christ with His brethren renders this gift propitiatory in its effects upon them. For it is human nature which He has offered up in spotless sacrifice to the Father ; the whole race is represented in Him. He is the Head and the Root of all mankind.
Strana 109 - Then Christian gave three leaps for joy, and went on singing: Thus far did I come laden with my sin; Nor could aught ease the grief that I was in, Till I came hither; what a place is this ! Must here be the beginning of my bliss? Must here the burden fall from off my back? Must here the strings that bound it to me crack? Blest cross! blest sepulchre! blest rather be The man that there was put to shame for me.
Strana 99 - As I live, saith the Lord, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live, turn ye, turn ye, from your evil ways; for why will ye die?
Strana 18 - Father, sees there that on which He can pour forth a full tide of complacency and approval. There were barriers which the Divine justice no doubt placed between God and sinful man ; for perfect justice can never be on terms with sin ; can never call things other than...
Strana 18 - Christ's sacrifice of Himself was indeed a satisfaction to Divine justice, and that in a far higher sense than is furnished by any mere notions of paying a debt, or enduring a penalty. The Righteousness of God has an entire satisfaction in the work of Christ Jesus. The Supreme Reason, the Perfect Mind of the Father, sees there that oa which He can pour forth a full tide of complacency and approval.
Strana 23 - God as the end of all good, is done in order that we may cleave to Him in holy fellowship. St. Thomas Aquinas: that a sacrifice is something done to the honour due to God, and with a view to propitiating Him. And Christ's work he pronounces to be a true sacrifice because, eminently proceeding from love, it is eminently acceptable to God. In truth, when we look at the whole genus, of which burnt-offerings, sin-offerings, thank-offerings are the several species, we are forced to regard the generic...
