Upon a Life I have not lived,
Upon a Death I did not die,
Another’s Life; Another’s Death,
I stake my whole eternity.
Not on the tears which I have shed,
Not on the sorrows I have known,
Another’s tears; Another’s griefs,
On these I rest, on these alone.
Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)
May we sit at the foot of the cross; and there learn what sin has done, what justice has done, what love has done.
John Newton (1725 – 1807)
The more obscene symbol in human history is the Cross; yet in its ugliness it remains the most eloquent testimony to human dignity.
R.C. Sproul (1939 – 2017)
Nothing can be so precious to us that we should not give it up to him who gave himself there for us on the tree.
J. Gresham Machen (1881 – 1937)
Merry Christmas to all my Life Is Worship readers!
Who can be astonished at anything when he has once learned the mystery of the manger and the cross?
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
They gave our Master a crown of thorns. Why do we hope for a crown of roses?
Martin Luther (1483-1546)
