It is occupied by groups of weeping spectators. So we are not only permitted to sympathize with Christ as the Man of sorrows, but that, just as two partners in a firm are both joint possessors of the capital which belongs to the firm, so that wondrous wealth of sorrow which belonged to the Lord Jesus Christ, so far as it is a source of wealth, belongs in a measure to us, who are partners with Him. In the vision of the morning there appeared to her a minute crown twined here and there with thorns, and by the side of this tiny ensign of the Saviour's deep, abounding love, lay another crown, composed wholly of thorns, large murderous spines, such as doubtless composed the wreath of painful mockery that bound the brow of the Son of God.

If, then, God has made a new creature in Christ Jesus, He has provided for it an element and gratification for its spiritual desires. And, in like manner, if Christ rose from the dead the third day, according to the Scriptures, the Christian also has experience of an inward resurrection. St. Paul, being thus sure of the resurrection as a fact, was not embarrassed by an a priori doctrine forbidding him to ignore it. We are conformed to this when the Divine glory is the end of all our actions, and when we wage war against sin.3. It is a token of God's mercy as well as our infirmity that we are benumbed by pain.

What is there in the saints which should die? What is there in the saints which should die? If we learn what it is to be conformed to the image of His death, as our wilfulness and waywardness learn to submit themselves to the gentle discipline of suffering, and if in each fresh cross we find a fresh revelation of the loving will of the Father, how calm, how resurrection-like our lives must needs become!(W.

Sometimes in the midst of all his enjoyment he says, "These are not my portion," and when deprived of these he can encourage himself in God (1 Samuel 30:6; 1 Samuel 1:18).4. Love cannot clasp all it yearns for in its bosom, without first suffering for it. (b) That the Divine administration implies the punishment of sin as well as the reward of righteousness.
