[b]The crucifixion of Christ[/b](Archibald Alexander)The truths which are exhibited in a clear and strong light by the crucifixion of Christ, are such as these:1. The infinite evil of sin, which in order to its pardon, required such a sacrifice.2. The holiness and justice of God, which would not allow sin to pass without full evidenceof the divine disapprobation, and His inflexible purpose to visit it with deserved punishment.3. The wisdom of God, in contriving a method of salvation by which His own glory would be promoted in the eternal salvation of hell-deserving sinners. This wisdom is chiefly manifest in the incarnation of the Son of God, by which the divine and human natures are united in one person.4. But the most wonderful exhibition of the cross is the mercy of God, the love of God to sinners;such love as never could have been conceived of, had it not been manifest by the gift of his own Son!
