“Because of me”

leave a comment »

Because of me – Ray Ortlund.

“Every time we look at the cross Christ seems to say to us, ‘I am here because of you.  It is your sin I am bearing, your curse I am suffering, your debt I am paying, your death I am dying.’  Nothing in history or in the universe cuts us down to size like the cross.  All of us have inflated views of ourselves, especially in self-righteousness, until we have visited a place called Calvary.  It is there, at the foot of the cross, that we shrink to our true size.”

John R. W. Stott, The Message of Galatians (London, 1968), page 179.

I hope to post more “original” material on here, but I will more than likely post a lot of things I come across through my own listening and reading.
