I cannot think little of sin, when . . .

(J.C. Ryle)

“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46

Would I know how exceedingly sinful and abominable sin is in the sight of God? Where shall I see sin most fully brought out? 

Shall I turn to the history of the flood, and read how sin drowned the world? 

Shall I go to the shore of the Dead Sea, and mark what sin brought on Sodom and Gomorrah? 

No! I can find a clearer proof still! I look at the cross of Christ!

There I see that sin is so filthy and damnable, that nothing but the blood of God’s own Son can wash it away! 

There I see that sin has so separated me from my holy Maker, that all the angels in Heaven could never have made peace between us. Nothing could reconcile us, short of the death of Christ. 

If I listened to the wretched talk of proud people, I might sometimes imagine that sin was not so very sinful! But I cannot think little of sin, when I look at the cross of Christ!

  1. Thank God at Calvary He took my sin. It was nailed to the cross. I do not have to look at it or concentrate on it. It is finished. Now I must live my life in a state of repentance to ensure before my Saviour I now have a clean pure heart on a regular basis. No looking back and grieving about ‘past’ sins but daily knowing my ‘sin’ nature causes me to stumble regularly. Thank you for post and reminder.

  2. ie refining the comment above. I look always to what was done at calvary but never again look at my sins or grieve about was past and nailed to the cross.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
