[b]He leaps into a sea of wrath![/b]
(Brooks, "The Golden Key to Open Hidden Treasures")
Christ went through heaven and hell, life and death,
sorrow and suffering, misery and cruelty--and all to
bring us to glory! And shall we not prize Him?
When in a storm, the nobles of Xerxes had to lighten
the ship to preserve their king's life--they leaped
into the sea! But our Lord Jesus Christ, to preserve
our lives, our souls--He leaps into a sea of wrath!
Oh, whenever we cast an eye upon Christ's sufferings,
let us stand and wonder; yes, let us be swallowed up
in a deep admiration of Christ's love, and of His
Father's impartial justice!
A daily eyeing of the cross of Christ, would . . .
scatter a Christian's fears,
arm him against temptations,
support him under afflictions,
weaken his sins,
strengthen his graces,
cheer his soul, and
mend his life!
