Gospel-Driven Quote of the Week

“The consummation of their happiness [miserable sinners], is a branch of the joy which was set before him. For their sakes, that they might be happy, that he may be admired in them, and by them, to the glory of God, who is all in all, he voluntarily substituted himself to sufferings and death. He endured the cross, and he despised the shame. He gave his back to the smiters, his cheeks to them that plucked off the hair; he hid not his face from shame and spitting,” (John Newton, The Works of John Newton, vol. 4, “Voluntary Suffering, Isaiah 50:6,” p. 213).
