O what a melting consideration is this!

(John Flavel)

"The Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me!" Galatians 2:20

Out of Christ's condemnation — flows my justification!

Out of His agony — comes my victory!

Out of His pain — comes my ease!

Out of His stripes — comes my healing!

Out of His gall and vinegar — comes my honey!

Out of His curse — comes my blessing!

Out of His crown of thorns — comes my crown of glory!

Out of His sin-atoning death — comes my eternal life!

O what a melting consideration is this!
