The Yesteryear Chronicles

"What is true joy or hope?
Where can it be found?
Is it the promise of gold streets?
Is it escaping the fires of hell?
No, all things are worthless in view
The surpassing value of simply knowing God and being known by Him"

The Father’s Bargain With the Son by John Flavel

Here you may suppose the Father to say, when driving his bargain with Christ for you:
Father:My son, here is a company of poor miserable souls, that have utterly undone themselves, and now lie open to my justice! Justice demands satisfaction for them, or will satisfy itself in the eternal ruin of them: What shall be done for these souls (And thus Christ returns).
Son:O my Father, such is my love to, and pity for them, that rather than they shall perish eternally, I will be responsible for them as their Surety; bring in all thy bills, that I may see what they owe thee; Lord, bring them all in, that there may be no after-reckonings with them; at my hand shalt thou require it. I will rather choose to suffer thy wrath than they should suffer it: upon me, my Father, upon me be all their debt.
Father:But, my Son, if thou undertake for them, thou must reckon to pay the last mite, expect no abatement's; if I spare them, I will not spare thee.
Son:Content, Father, let it be so; charge it all upon me, I am able to discharge it: and though it prove a kind of undoing to me, though it impoverish all my riches, empty all my treasures, (for so indeed it did, 2 Cor. 8: 9. “Though he was rich, yet for our sakes he became poor”) yet I am content to undertake it.
Blush, ungrateful believers, O let shame cover your faces; judge in yourselves now, has Christ deserved that you should stand with him for trifles, that you should shrink at a few petty difficulties, and complain, this is hard, and that is harsh? O if you knew the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ in this his wonderful condescension for you, you could not do it.

Oh, The Depths - Wolves at the Gate (via greenbeanslabyrinth)

The Father of grace and mercy has poured out his wrath completely on His Son for our sake; we are free. Brought the Lamb to slaughter for me.
