Receiving Our Strokes

Flavel, speaking of the "ardent love and large pity that filled Jesus' heart towards poor sinners", says:

"O how compassionately did his heart work towards us, that when he saw the arm of justice lifted up to destroy us, would interpose himself, and receive the stroke, though he knew it would smite him dead!"

From Fountain of Life Opened Up, by John Flavel.

Would love to hear from you. Also maybe see a new post sometime, but there are a lot in the archives keep me occupied.
