The Curse Removed!

by Spurgeon, "The Curse Removed"

The curse of God is not easily taken away. In fact, there
was but one method whereby it could be removed.

The lightnings were in God's hand; they must be launched-
he said they must. The sword was unsheathed; it must be
satisfied- God vowed it must.

How, then, was the sinner to be saved?

The only answer was this--
The Son of God appears; and he says,
"Father! launch your thunderbolts at me!
Here is my breast- plunge that sword in here!
Here are my shoulders- let the lash of vengeance
fall on them!"

And Christ, the Substitute, came forth and stood for us,
"the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God."
