CQOD: 09/12/05 -- Calvin: the suffering of Christ

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 12, 2005
    My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
    -- Psalm 22:1 (KJV)

    The Creed sets forth what Christ suffered in the sight of men, and then appositely speaks of that invisible and incomprehensible judgment which he underwent in the sight of God in order that we might know not only that Christ’s body was given as the price of our redemption, but that he paid a greater and more excellent price in suffering in his soul the terrible torments of a condemned and forsaken man.
    ... John Calvin (1509-1564)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to know the price for my sins.
