What a picture of a sinner’s surety did Jesus on the cross of Calvary present! Not a shade, not a stroke was lacking! It was a perfect picture— a complete personification of the curse! The crown of thorns was around his brow; it formed his emblematic title, “KING OF THE CURSE!” His blessed body was exposed to view. Our first parents hid their nakedness amongst the trees of the garden; but Jesus hung exposed upon a tree, and suffered the SHAME OF THE CURSE. His hands and feet were nailed to the wood, he was transfixed immovably by the POWER OF THE CURSE. Scornful taunts and dreadful curses were heaped upon his head; he tasted the BITTERNESS OF THE CURSE. The light of his Father’s countenance was withdrawn from him, and he endured the HORRORS OF THE CURSE. Behold this double picture— the transparent representation of the Curse and the Redemption! Gaze upon it with awe and love, with gratitude and reverence! Christ is dying under your curse, and yet scattering blessings around him! O take them! Receive the gracious exchange! Exclaim with the apostle, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us” (Gal. 3: 13); and gratefully exult with the prophet, and say, “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness” (Isa. 61: 10).

Praying men must be strong in hope, and faith, and prayer. They must know how to wait and to press, to wait on God and be in earnest in our approaches to Him.

How a Christian lives is very important. A Christian should put himself into the arms of his Bridegroom, Christ, and let Christ produce his fruit through him. Just as a bride cannot produce natural children until she puts herself into the arms of the bridegroom, so a Christian cannot produce real spiritual fruit except he put himself into the hands of Christ.
