PART 1 - His Past Work.

His past work was accomplished by Him when He became incarnate. It was
finished when He died on Calvary's cross. We have therefore to consider first
of all these fundamentals of our faith.

The Work of the Son of God is foreshadowed and predicted in the Old
Testament Scriptures.
II. The Incarnation of the Son of God.
III. His Work on the cross and what has been accomplished by it.

Throughout the Old Testament Scriptures, God announced beforehand the
work of His Son. This is a great theme and one which needs to be emphasized.
These foreshadowings and predictions were made in different ways. First we
might mention the appearance from time to time on earth of a supernatural
Being. This Being was the Son of God. As soon as sin had entered, He
appeared on the scene seeking those who were lost. He Himself announced
the promise, that the seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's head. He
indicated in Genesis 3:15, His incarnation, His redemptive work on the cross
and His final victory over the enemy of God. Then He covered the nakedness
of His creatures by making them coats of skin. For the first time in the Word
of God, it was made known by this act what the blessed fruit of His atoning
work would be.

Manifestations of Jehovah

And the same Jehovah appeared in visible form unto Abraham. He came as
traveler accompanied by two angels. He ate in the presence of Abraham, who
worshipped and addressed Him as Lord. This Being was none other than the
Son of God, the same who after His resurrection appeared to the two disciples
on their way to Emmaus as a traveler, and who, at another occasion, ate of a
honeycomb and a piece of fish. In His presence Abraham interceded. This
Lord, who visited Abraham later, made fire and brimstone fall from heaven
upon Sodom and Gomorrah; He executed judgment. He appeared unto Jacob
and was the mysterious man who wrestled with him at Peniel; later Jacob called
Him "The Angel, the Redeemer." Repeatedly we hear of Him as "The Angel of
the Lord," not a created angel, but an uncreated Being. Moses saw Him in the
burning bush, and heard His voice. And while He is spoken of as the angel of
the Lord, He revealed Himself as Jehovah and made this Name known to
Moses. He was with Israel in the wilderness and dwelled with them in the Glory
cloud. He guided them, supplied their need, protected them, judged them and
threw their enemies. To Joshua He appeared and manifested Himself as "The
captain over the Lord's hosts." Manoah and his wife saw Him, and witnessed
His ascension into heaven, in the smoke and fire of the sacrifice. Isaiah, Ezekiel
and Daniel gazed upon His Glory. All these were but foreshadowings and
glimpses of the two great manifestations of the Son of God on earth, as they are
necessitated by His work, His manifestation in humiliation and His manifestation
in power and glory.

Other Foreshadowings of His Work.

But there are other foreshadowings of His work. All the divinely given
institutions and many of the historical events recorded in the Old Testament
foreshadow His work. History, as recorded in the Old Testament, is the
preliminary history of the incarnation. The whole sacrificial system of the
levitical priesthood told out beforehand, in many ways, what the great
redemptive work of the Lamb of God was to be. Each offering and sacrifice
revealed the different phases of His work on the cross, as well as His holy and
spotless humanity. The sufferings of Christ and their meaning for lost sinners
were thus made known. From Abel's lamb to the last lamb, which died before
the true Lamb of God uttered the never to be forgotten words on the cross,
"It is finished," the thousands of lambs and bulls and goats, the innumerable
herds of animals slain, were all types of the one great sacrifice, brought on
Calvary's cross. The tabernacle in all its appointments, down to the minutest
details, had some meaning in connection with the Person of Him who is
"Wonderful" and His wonderful work. And what else could we say of the
historical events, such as the Passover, the passage through the Red Sea, the
brazen serpent hung up in the wilderness. And to this we might add how men in
their experiences, like Isaac, Joseph, David and others foreshadowed the
sufferings of Christ and the glory that should follow.

Direct Bible Prophecies

Still more numerous are the direct prophecies announcing the different phases
of the work of Christ. That He should appear as man, how and where He
should be born, His life, His service, His miracles, all was repeatedly foretold
by the Prophets. But the great mass of predictions concern His sufferings as
the sin-bearer and His glories as the King. None of the details of His sufferings
were omitted. Think, for instance, of the predictions contained in the 22nd
Psalm. Death by crucifixion was unknown among the Jewish people. No nation
in touch with Israel, living at that time, put human beings to death in that way.
It was reserved for cruel Rome to invent death by crucifixion. Yet in this Psalm
there is given by divine inspiration a complete picture of that unknown mode of
death by crucifixion. We read of His hands and feet pierced, the bones out of
joint, the excessive thirst, the tongue cleaving to the jaws. And so we find His
resurrection, His presence with God, His coming again and His Kingdom of
Righteousness and Glory foretold in the Prophets.

The Inspiration of the Old Testament

We emphasize these facts of divine foreshadowing and prediction, because in
these last days thousands of men have arisen throughout Christendom who
boldly deny the inspiration of the Old Testament. They would have us believe
that all these wonderful predictions are of human origin. They brand nearly
everything as legend, and declare that there are no Messianic predictions in the
Bible, that God did not speak to the Prophets concerning His Son and His
work. Such a denial of the revelation of God in the Old Testament Scriptures is
but the vanguard of the denial of the Son of God and His work. "Denying the
Lord that bought them" (2 Peter 2:1), is the leading phase of apostate
Christendom in the last days. It is Anti-christianity. This denial is preceded by
a denial of the written Word of God. The higher criticism, so called, is Satan's
leaven which leavens the theological institutions of Christendom and is fully
preparing an empty Christian profession for the reception of the Man of Sin.
To believe that these marvelous, harmonious predictions and foreshadowings
contained in the Old Testament are the productions of clever men, legends put
together by evil men, who claimed to have received them from God, is far
more difficult than to believe that they are given by divine revelation.

II. The Incarnation of the Son of God

And now let us turn to the great truth and fact of the Incarnation of the Son
of God. When the fullness of time had come, that is the appointed time, the
Son of God appeared on earth in the form of man. The Word which was in
the beginning, the Word that was with the Father, the Word that was God, the
Word by whom all things were made, that Word was made flesh and dwelt on
earth. He who subsisted in the form of God, emptied Himself and took upon
Himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.

The incarnation is a deep mystery, the depths of which human reason can never
fathom. We must approach it in the spirit of deep reverence. Take off thy shoes
from thy feet for the ground whereon thou standest is holy ground! In the first
chapter in the Gospel of Luke, we have the record of the divine announcement
of the incarnation as it was made to the virgin, who had found favor in the sight
of God. As she sat in the house, perhaps engaged in holy meditation, the angel
Gabriel appeared unto her with the message from the throne of God. Was there
ever such a message given to Gabriel before? Great as the revelation was which
he was commissioned to carry to praying Daniel, the communication to the
Virgin Mary here is far greater.

The Incarnation Announced.

We read in Luke 1:35: "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy
Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow
thee: therefore also that Holy Thing which shall be born of thee shall be called
the Son of God." Let us notice the two great statements given about His
incarnation. "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee." From the Gospel of
Matthew we learn the full meaning of this statement. "That which is conceived
in her is of the Holy Ghost." Therefore His human nature was produced in the
virgin by the creative action of the Holy Spirit. Because His human nature was
thus produced, it was a nature without sin; not only did He not sin, but He
could not sin. He was sinless, absolutely holy, because He was conceived by
the Holy Spirit.

The second statement is: "And the power of the Highest shall overshadow
thee." This is not a repetition of the same truth as contained in the first
statement. If this too would mean the Holy Spirit, we would have to conclude
that the Holy Spirit is the Father of Him who became incarnate. We read at
once after this second statement, "Therefore also that Holy Thing which shall
be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." The power of the Highest does
not mean the power of the Holy Spirit. It is none other than the Son of God
Himself. The eternal Son of God, He who is God, overshadowed her and this
overshadowing meant the union of Himself with the human nature created by
the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mary.

He is called "that Holy Thing." He is something entirely new, a Being which
cannot be classified. And then we read again, "That Holy Thing shall be called
the Son of God." It does not say "shall be the Son of God;" such He ever was.
Incarnation did not make Him Son of God. He shall be called Son of God; God
manifested in the flesh.

Much time could be spent in adding to these remarks, or in reviewing the
different attempts which have been made to explain the great mystery. We
might also enumerate all the evil teachings and theories which are the results
of attempted explanations. But all this would be but waste of time. No human
mind can fathom the depths of the incarnation, nor fully grasp the wonderful
personality of the God-Man, the Lord Jesus Christ. Far better it is to abide by
these simple declarations of the Word of God, than to enter into speculations,
which can never solve this great mystery.

A certain American statesman was once asked, "Can you comprehend how
Jesus Christ could be both God and Man?" The great thinker replied, "No, sir;
I cannot. And I would be ashamed to acknowledge Him as my Saviour if I
could, for then He would not be greater than myself."

This is very true indeed. With joyful and grateful hearts we believe the great
revelation given to us in God's holy Word, that God so loved the world that He
gave His only begotten Son and that the Son of God left Heaven's Glory and
came to this earth. He emptied Himself and appeared in the form of the
creature. This, however, does not mean what an evil theory, by the name of
"Kenosis," teaches, that He emptied Himself of His Godhead. He emptied
Himself of His outward Glory. The child which rested on the bosom of Mary is
the One, who ever was in the bosom of the Father. Listen once more to the
language of the 22 Psalm. "I was cast upon thee from the womb: Thou art my
God from my mother's belly. Thou didst make me hope when I was upon my
mother's breasts." What mere human child could have ever said this truthfully?
Nor is this the language of a poet. The child born in Bethlehem alone could
speak thus.

The Foundation of the Gospel

The incarnation is the great foundation of the whole Gospel. No incarnation
means no Gospel, no Hope and no God. The person who denies this truth has
no right whatever to the name of Christian. At no time has the denial of this
great foundation truth been so pronounced and wide-spread as in our times.
Men believing themselves wise, in possession of greater knowledge than former
generations, turn their backs upon revelation. The miracle, including the
incarnation, is denied. And this denial is not from the side of outspoken infidels
alone, but those who profess to be teachers of Christianity are the foremost
leaders in it. We mention Reginald Campbell and his followers in the so-called
"New Theology." And the hundreds of evangelical preachers, who wished this
man Godspeed during his recent visit to America, who passed resolutions of
thanks, after listening to his subtle infidelity, are, in the light of 2 John 10,
partakers of his sin. And then there is that Anti-christian system, known by the
name of Christian Science. In its so-called philosophical, in reality, satanic
utterances, it opposes the revelation of God and denies that Jesus Christ is come
into the flesh. That
evil book, "Science and Health," to which we readily accord
inspiration, not from above, but from below, teaches "The Virgin Mary
conceived the idea of God and gave to her ideal the name of Jesus;" and again
"Jesus was the offspring of Mary's self-communion with God."

It is a comfort to believers in these evil days to remember, that such a rejection
of the doctrine of Christ, His Person and His work, is predicted in the Bible to
place immediately before the Lord comes. The end of the age is upon
us. These denials will not decrease, but become more numerous.

The Purpose of the Incarnation

And what was the purpose of the incarnation? By incarnation the
invisible God was made known to man. The Lord Jesus Christ is the image of
the invisible God. No man hath seen God at any time, the only Begotten, who
is in the bosom of the Father, hath declared Him. As One with the Father, the
Lord Jesus Christ could say, "he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father."

The attributes of God were made known by Him in incarnation.
We behold the
holiness of God in that holy life, which was lived on earth to glorify the
He manifested omniscience. He knew what was in men and knew their
thoughts. He manifested the power of God in controlling the forces of nature,
commanding the wind and the waves, turning water into wine. He had power
over disease, over the demons and over death. He revealed the love and the
compassion of God.

By incarnation the Son of God brought likewise the Word of God to man.
"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the
fathers by the Prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son"
(Hebrews 1:1,2). He confirmed the Law and the Prophets, therefore all
criticism of the Old Testament attacks the authority and infallibility of the Son
of God. He also revealed the will of God, made known the Father and the fact
of eternal life, and the eternal and conscious punishment of the wicked. He
predicted the great future events concerning Himself and His Kingdom, the
end of the age and His visible Return.

The incarnation was necessary in anticipation of His work as the Priest of His
people. He was to be after His death on the cross and after resurrection, the
merciful and faithful High Priest. Such He is now. He took part of flesh and
blood, we read in the second chapter of Hebrews, that He might be a merciful
and faithful High Priest. He was tempted in all things as we are, with the
exception of sin. He suffered in being tempted so that He might be touched with
the feeling of our infirmities and succour them that are tempted. And all He was
to be and is now, the Second Man, the last Adam, the head of the church, the
head of the new creation, all and much else necessitated His incarnation.

However, the great purpose of the incarnation of the Son of God
was His work
of redemption. For this great purpose He came into the world.
He came
that, after a life, which completely glorified the Father and upheld His holy law
and vindicated God's rights as the lawgiver, He might accomplish the great work
of atonement. John stated this great work the Son of God came to do in a brief
sentence. "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."
Sin, that accursed thing, had to be taken out of the way. Propitiation for sins
had to be made. A sacrifice had to be brought which would glorify a holy God
and satisfy, as well as exalt, His righteousness. Peace had to be made. The sins
of many had to be paid and the full penalty of them to be borne.

Incarnation in itself, the marvelous and ever blessed humiliation of the Son of
God by taking on the human form, His holy blessed life, His loving words,
words of life and peace, yea, all He did in deeds of love and compassion could
never accomplish this. Incarnation brought God to Man, but could never bring
man back to a holy God. Incarnation could not make an end of sin, nor make it
possible for a righteous God to show mercy to the fallen and the lost, in a
righteous way.
This great work of redemption could only be accomplished
by His death on the cross.
For this He had come. He came to put away sin by
the sacrifice of Himself. The Author and Prince of Life came that He might give
His Life a ransom for many. The good Shepherd appeared to give His life for
the sheep. By His death alone, the great work of redemption could be

III. His Work on the Cross and What Has Been
Accomplished by It.

And now let us consider His work on the cross and what has been accomplished
by it. But who is able to speak worthily of this theme of all themes? Who can
fathom the solemn yet blessed fact, the death of the Son of God on the cross?
What tongue or pen can describe the sad, yet glorious truth, that the Just One
died for the unjust, that Christ died for the ungodly! He who knew no sin was
made sin for us! And what human mind can estimate the wonderful results of
His work on the cross!

Some Christians speak as if the death on the cross, the work accomplished
there, is so fully known to them, that they do not need any more instruction on
it. They tell us that they search for deeper things. There can be nothing deeper
than the death of God's Son on the cross. Depths are here which are
unfathomable. We must ever turn back to the cross. Always we shall learn
something new. With unspeakable Glory upon us and greater glory before us in
eternal ages to come, the cross of Christ and the Lamb of God which has taken
away the sin of the world can never be forgotten. But we shall never know what
that death on the cross meant for Him and what it meant to God.

Made Sin for Us:

In Hebrews 10 we read of the sacrifices which were offered by the Jews year
after year. These sacrifices could not take away sin. Then He, the Son of God,
stepped forward and made His great declaration. Coming into the world He
saith, "Sacrifice and offering Thou wouldest not, but a body hast Thou prepared
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin Thou hast had no pleasure" (verses 5-6).
The body prepared puts before us again the fact of incarnation.

That body was a prepared body, a holy body, an undefiled body, a body in
which sin could not dwell and on which death had no claim. But when He took
on that body, He likewise said: "Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God." In the tenth
verse we read, "By the which will [the will of God, which dates back before the
foundation of the world], we are sanctified through the offering of the body of
Jesus Christ once for all." Through the eternal Spirit, He offered Himself
without spot to God. The holy Lamb of God, with no spot or blemish upon
Him, shed His precious blood on the cross, to procure redemption. But what it
all meant
for Him who was as truly Man as He is God! Here was a Being perfectly holy,
One who had always pleased God and did His will, yea, His meat and drink was
to do the will of Him that sent Him. Sin was the horrible defiling thing to Him.
He, too, like the holy God, hated and hates sin. And yet such a One was made
sin for us. He had to stand in the place of guilty sinners and all the waves and
billows of divine judgment and wrath had to pass over Him. He drank the cup
of wrath to the last drop.

He suffered in a fourfold way:

1. In Himself. Before He ever approached the garden of Gethsemane, He was
troubled in His spirit. We hear Him say, "Now is my soul troubled ... Father,
save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour" (John 12:27).
He looked on towards the cross. And why that agony in the garden? Why was
His sweat as it were great drops of blood? Why the repeated prayer, "Father, if
it be possible, let this cup pass from me?" How many dishonoring explanations
have been written of the Gethsemane suffering, as if He was afraid to die or that
the devil tried to kill Him there to prevent His death on the cross, and that He
feared the devil. But what was it? He suffered in Himself. His holy soul shrank
back from that which a holy God must hate, that which He hated -- SIN. He
was about to be made sin and He knew no sin. What suffering this produced in
the Holy One of God to take all upon Himself and to stand in the sinner's place
before a holy sin-hating God, our poor finite minds cannot realize.

2. He suffered from men. This he had foretold. When man, guilty man, cast
himself upon the willing victim, all the wickedness and vileness and cruelty man
is capable of committing was brought out and spent upon the blessed Son of
God. The scourging, the buffeting, the mocking, the spitting and the shame
connected with it, the shame of the cross, He despised. How that sensitive body
must have quivered under it all!

3. He suffered from the devil. He had tempted Him. Nothing was left undone,
what this being could do. All his cunning and powers were brought into use, with
the one purpose to keep Him from going to the cross and dying in the sinner's
place. And when at last he could not keep Him from going to the cross, then he
cast himself upon the victim and heaped all his hatred and malice upon Him. He
used man in all this awful work and no doubt the legions of demons. And in all
this the Son of God was as a lamb, which is dumb before the shearers. He
opened not His mouth.

4. But the greatest of all, He suffered from God. With hushed breath, we
must speak of this. It is the Holy of Holies of the great work on the cross; the
impenetrable mystery of the atoning work of the Son of God. From the
darkness which enshrouded the cross and the blessed sufferer on the accursed
tree, there came the mournful cry: "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken
me?" It made known the awful suffering, which the Lamb of God, the substitute
of sinners, endured from the hand of a holy God. He was smitten and afflicted
of God. Have you noticed that in the 22 Psalm this cry of the sufferer on the
cross stands first? Man would have written the sufferings of Christ in a far
different way. The descriptions of the sufferings not written by inspiration
would have been in this wise: The physical sufferings, how they scourged Him,
all the sickening details of that which even cruel Rome called the intermediate
death, would have been pictured. Then would have followed a description of
how the nails were driven into the blessed hands who had lovingly touched so
many weary, sin-laden and disease-stricken bodies. All the agony of the cross
and its shame would have been described first by man. Then how the multitude
mocked and darkness came over the entire scene, then last of all, it would have
been stated, He cried, My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me? But the
Holy Spirit in this great Prophecy puts the cry of deepest agony first. Why?
Because in that hour the great work of atonement, propitiation, sin-bearing,
judgment and wrath enduring, was once and for all accomplished. In this same
Psalm we read what men energized by Satan's power, did unto Him. But man
could not put Him to death. It is written, "Thou [that is God] hast brought me
into the dust of death." God's own hand rested upon Him. "The LORD hath
laid on Him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6). "It pleased the LORD to bruise
Him; He hath put Him to grief" (Isaiah 53:10). And elsewhere we read, what
refers to the same atoning work of our Lord when He stood in the sinner's place.

"All Thy waves and Thy billows are gone over me" (Ps. 42:7).

"Thine arrows stick fast in me" (Ps. 38:2).

"Thy hand presseth me sore" (Ps. 38:2).

"Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit" (Ps. 88:6).

"Thy wrath lieth hard upon me" (Ps. 88:7).

"Thy fierce wrath goeth over me" (Ps. 88:16).

"I suffer Thy terrors" (Ps. 88:15).

But what it all meant for the Son of God! Who can tell out His sorrow and
deep affliction? Never shall we fully discover the greatness of the price which
was paid. The death of the cross, it has been truly said, stands perfectly alone.
It can never be repeated and because of its eternal efficacy, will never need to
be repeated.

"It Is Finished"

And this great work He came to do, is finished. "It is finished!" thus He spoke
on the cross and the words assure us that all is done. The rent veil and the open
tomb tell us "It is finished." But what has been accomplished in this blessed
work? We cannot fully grasp it now as long as we look into a glass darkly.
When at last we are brought into His Presence, transformed into His own image,
when we shall have share with Him in His glorious inheritance, when at last sin
and death are no more and a new heaven and new earth are called into
existence, then shall we more fully know what that work has accomplished. All,
ALL we have and are, all we shall have and shall be as His own, has its blessed
source in the cross of Christ. He died for all. He gave Himself a ransom for all.
He tasted death for every man. He is the propitiation for the whole world (not
for the sins of the whole world, else the whole world would be saved). It means
His work is available to all sinners. Upon that fact that He died for all, the
Gospel is
preached to lost and guilty sinners. Christ died for the ungodly.

"Whosoever will" -- "Whosoever believeth," these are the precious conditions
of the Gospel of Grace which sound forth from the finished work of Christ on
the cross. And all who believe on Him and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their
Saviour, for them He bore their sins on the cross. Each believing sinner can
look back to the cross and can say, He "loved me, and gave Himself for me."
He paid my debt. He bore my sins in His own body on the tree. He stood in
my place. He was my substitute. He tasted death for me.

Much of the evil teachings of the present day, such as universal salvation, larger
hope, millennial dawnism, etc., emanate from the fact that propitiation and
substitution are not correctly understood. Propitiation is the Godward side of
the sacrifice of Christ, with this God is satisfied. The propitiation is for the
whole world. This does not mean that the whole world is therefore to be saved.
He bore the sins of many -- not the sins of all. He was the substitute on the
cross only for such who believe on Him.

And what do we possess who have believed on Him, own Him as our Saviour
and our Substitute? Many Scriptures might be read in answer to this question.
We cannot do so, but shall mention briefly a few things which all believing
sinners share on account of the finished work of Christ on the cross.

We have a perfect justification. All our sins are forever put away, because they
were borne and paid for by His death on the cross. The Blood of Jesus Christ,
His Son, cleanses us from all sin. All has been righteously and forever settled.
"Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God who justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died" (Rom. 8:33-34). "There is
therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus" (Rom. 8:1).

We have perfect Peace with God. Peace has been made in the blood of the
cross. It can never be unmade. We have peace with God through our Lord
Jesus Christ. He is our Peace. So many Christians think their peace with God
depends on their walk and service. If they sin, they think they have lost their
peace and their standing before God and unless they are restored, they will be
lost forever. Not our walk and service, not anything we have done, we do or
shall do, is the ground of peace with God, but what God has done for us in
Christ's atoning work on the cross.

Then we have a perfect acceptance and standing before God; perfect nearness
and access to God. We are made nigh by the blood. With no more conscience
of sins, we can stand in God's own presence, purged and cleansed, complete in
Him, as near to God as He is.

His blessed work on the cross has made an end of the old man. We are dead to
the world, to self, to sin, to the law. The old man was crucified with Christ. "sin
shall not have dominion over you" (Rom. 6:14). This is the blessed message
from the cross. We have deliverance from the power of darkness and a perfect
title to an eternal inheritance. No uncertainty is attached to all this. We have
salvation, are saved, forever secure, Sons of God, Heirs of God indwelt by the
Holy Spirit, and much else, on account of the finished work of Christ on the

And to all this we add that on the cross He loved the church and gave Himself
for it. There He died for Israel and as a result the remnant of that people will
some day be delivered from iniquity and perverseness, as Balaam beheld them,
no iniquity in Jacob and no perverseness in Israel (Numbers 23:21). Groaning
creation will ultimately be freed from the bondage of corruption and brought
into the liberty of the sons of God, because He shed His blood on the cross.
All things in heaven and on the earth (not things under the earth) will be
reconciled in virtue of the death of Christ on the cross.

Ye Are Not Your Own

Let us remember as such who have been reconciled and have redemption
through His blood that we are bought with a price. Ye are not your own. "For
ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your
spirit, which are God's" (1 Cor. 6:20). Through His death we are positionally
dead; all who believe on Him have died. We are dead to the law, to the world,
to sin. But are we truly living, walking and acting as such who have died, dead
to sin and alive unto God? A child of God who walks after the flesh practically
denies the power and value of the blessed finished work of Christ on the cross.

Let us exalt in our lives, by our words and deeds, the cross of Christ. "But God
forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom
the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world" (Gal. 6:14).
