The most wonderful act

14 Jun

“When Christ hung dying on the cross, he was doing that that was the most wonderful act of love that ever was; and the posture that he died in was very suitable to signify his free and great love: he died with his arms spread open, as being ready to embrace all that would come to him. He was lift up upon the cross above the earth with his arms thus open, and there he made an offer of his love to the world; he was presented in open view to the world to be their Savior.”

Jonathan Edwards
