The most beautiful thing I ever heard of!

The most beautiful thing I ever heard of!

(Charles Spurgeon)

“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us–so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God!” 2 Corinthians 5:21

What could be better than the divine plan of substitutionary atonement? God must punish sin–He could not be God unless He did. It is a necessity of His nature, that He should hate sin with an infinite hatred, and must punish it!

Yet, as He had loved His people with an everlasting love, how could He better show His love to them and His hatred of sin–than by giving up His well-beloved Son to die instead of them! This seems to me to be the most beautiful thing I ever heard of–and it delights my soul to preach it!

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, by becoming a curse for us!” Galatians 3:13

About E.J.

My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour. I am a Christian artist and writer living in Gloucester, MA, where I have been living since God led me here in September of 2010. I am a painter, photographer and writer who, by the grace of God, has lived and worked as an artist for over 25 years, allowing me to separate myself from the World and walk in faith, to a large degree. I pray you are blessed, built up in your faith and Christian walk, and become an interactive participant in God's Morning. We're here as Christ's body, supporting and building each other up in all righteousness, in His name.
