From those deep wounds!
"And a man shall be as a hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." Isaiah 32:2
Here, sinner, is your hiding place! Under the shadow of Him who once groaned and bled on Calvary, you can find eternal repose!
While passing through this weary land, through this wilderness world — lean on Him, who will guide you safely to glory. In Him, you will experience that joy which the world cannot impart; and that peace of God, which passes all understanding.
By that blessed side which was once pierced with the soldier's spear — you will enjoy the favors and smiles of a reconciled God. From those deep wounds that were inflicted on the Savior's immortal form — fountains of joy, as inexhaustible as the ocean of divine perfection itself, will flow in the richest streams of grace, to refresh, invigorate and animate your soul.
O! there is something about Calvary so mysterious in its nature — and so glorious in its results. Time can never disclose, nor vast eternity unravel, those things connected with that affecting scene, displayed when the Son of God bowed His head and exclaimed, "It is finished!"
Go to Calvary, that life-giving mount, where the unbounded love of God for sinners once glowed in the bosom of His Son with more than human splendor; where it beamed forth in all the effulgence of the divinity — when the holy Jesus hung a suffering, bleeding, victim on the ignominious cross.
