We read sometimes of Christ given for us, and sometimes of Christ given to us. Sinner! It were impiety to think that the blessed martyrs were more patient than Christ.

The question requires for its answer only the belief in the unchangeableness of the Divine heart, and the uniformity of the Divine purpose. Delivered He was — not to despair, for that was impossible; nor to the torments of hell, which could never seize on His innocent soul; but to the wrath of God (Psalm 102:3, 4; Psalm 22:15), the terriblest thing in the world; the sting of sin, which is the sting of death.

The history and the logic are alike Divine, for the writer "spake as he was moved by the Holy Ghost."1. We do not live in the body till we be united to the head; nor till we have Christ, do we receive the saving effects of His grace; clear that once, and shall He not with Him give us all things? (3) The persons for whom — for the cursed race of fallen Adam, who had no strength to do anything for themselves.II.

In this manifestation of His love He appeareth rather a Father to us than to Him. He did not keep Him back, as He might have done, when the miseries of humanity cried for Him. We are accustomed to speak of Christ's life of unselfishness and His death of beneficence as being the revelation of the love of God as well as of Christ, because we believe that "God was in Christ reconciling the world," and that "He that hath seen Christ hath seen the Father." The gift is related to the gifts —(1) as means to ends. It was not because He owed it to us, but because His own heart was set upon it. Christ came to purchase all manner of benefits — the favour, the image, the everlasting fruition of the glory of God. "For us" men, then, and "for us" sinners, was Christ delivered (Isaiah 53:5). They are secondary; He is the primary. It's unlikely the Apostle Paul was holding up a single index finger when he finished writing his letter to the Romans, but maybe he could have.

We do not expect that a man that hands over £1,000,000 to another to help him, will stick at a farthing afterwards. IV. Olive. God, in His approaches of justice toward the sinner to correct him, may seem to go, like the consuls of Rome, with His rods and His axes carried before Him.

Was bestowed for the same end as that for which every other blessing will be needed, viz., to complete our happiness. We read sometimes of Christ given for us, and sometimes of Christ given to us.

There is perhaps no passage of Scripture which sets before you the love of God more overpoweringly than it is set in our text; not one which grounds on this love a more powerful argument why we should expect large things from the benevolence of our Maker; and yet is this very passage so constructed as to force on our attention that God has no mercy whatsoever for the sinful except through His Son. Not some men of all countries, but "for every man.". We may, indeed, feel that the joys of eternity may be of greater value than all the firstfruits and tokens in the shape of grace and growing meetness, here. The first of these gifts is unmistakable; but the other is not thus definite. The one gift is ours, the second gift not yet. To the heart of friendship — to the seat of honour?
