The remedy of all our miseries!

(Stephen Charnock)

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men–the man Christ Jesus!” 1 Timothy 2:5 

God, apart from Christ, is an angry, offended Sovereign.

Unless we behold God in and through Christ, the only Mediator–the terrors of His Majesty would overwhelm us.

Because of our sins–we dare not approach the Father, except in Christ.
We first fasten our eyes upon Christ, then upon the Father.

If Christ does not bear our guilt and reconcile us unto God, we must surely perish everlastingly! 

Before any man can think . . . 
  to stand before the face of God’s justice,
  be admitted to the secret chamber of God’s mercy,
  or partake of the riches of His grace–
he must look to one the Mediator, Christ Jesus.

Let us look upon a crucified Christ, as the remedy of all our miseries
His cross has procured our crown.
His passion has expiated our transgressions. 
His death has disarmed the law.
His blood has washed our sinful souls, spotless. 

His death is . . .
  the destruction of our enemies, 
  the spring of our happiness, and 
  the eternal testimony of divine love!
