The doctrine of substitution must be true; it could not have been invented by human wit

The doctrine of substitution must be true; it could not have been invented by human wit. Prima facie it bears the mark of truth upon it. It is the most wonderful story that ever was told: God himself condescends to suffer in the place of his enemies, he bears the sin of those who are rebels against his divine authority, that without injury to his justice or taint upon his righteousness, he might pardon sin, and receive the sinner into favor. Herein is love indeed! Here is justice truly vindicated, and great love glorified. Love both devised the plan and carried it out, and this day love makes it effectual in all who believe in Jesus.

Spurgeon, THE CURSE; AND THE CURSE FOR US. NO. 2093 DELIVERED ON LORD’S-DAY MORNING, MAY 26TH, 1889.
