From Octavius Winslow's, "CHRIST'S FINISHED WORK"
Christ relinquished his throne for a cross,
that he might accomplish redemption, and work out
the salvation of the people given to him by God.
Behold the Almighty sufferer!
There stood the Son of God, bearing the sin and enduring
the curse of his people-- putting away the one, and
exhausting entirely the other, by the sacrifice of himself.
The sufferings of Christ were unparalleled and intense.
Never since the universe was formed was there such a
sufferer as Jesus.
He was the Prince of sufferers.
No sorrow ever broke the heart like that which tore His in twain.
Come, poor sin-burdened, heart-broken penitent,
and sit beneath the shadow of this tree of life,
and its bending fruit of pardon, peace, joy,
and hope shall be sweet to your believing taste.
Christ took your cup of grief, your
cup of the curse,
pressed it to his lips, drank it to its dregs, then filled
it with his sweet, pardoning, sympathizing love, and gave
it back for you to drink, and to drink for ever!
