The hill of comfort?
The hill of comfort is the hill of Calvary;
the house of consolation is built with the wood of the cross;
the temple of heavenly cordials is founded upon the riven rock,
riven by the spear which pierced its side.
Nowhere does the soul ever find such consolation as on that
very spot where misery reigned, where woe triumphed, and
where agony reached its climax.
There GRACE had dug a foundation, which ever gushed with
waters as pure as crystal, each drop capable of alleviating the
woes and agonies of mankind.
You have your seasons of woe, my brothers and sisters in
Christ-- And you will confess that it was not at Olivet that you
ever found comfort, nor on the hill of Sinai. But Gethsemane,
Gabbatha, and Golgotha have been the means of comfort to you.
The bitter herbs of Gethsemane have often taken away the
bitters of your life. The scourge of Gabbatha have often
scourged away your cares. And the groans of Golgotha have
put all other groans to flight.
