Sixthly, Consider who paid the ransom for sin
Consider the ransom for sin — who paid it and what was paid. Consider Christ Jesus, who He was and what He did and suffered to take away your sin. He, the only Son of God, very God, veiled His glory for a time, and left heaven to dwell in the tabernacle of human flesh, taking upon Him the estate of a servant (Phil 2:6-8). He was poor, despised of men (Isa 53:3); persecuted from the manger to the cross; made to shed tears abundantly; yea, so tormented with the sense of God’s wrath for your sin, that for very anguish He sweat as it were drops of blood (Luke 22: 44). He was accused, condemned, spit upon, mocked, buffeted, and scourged by wicked men (Matt 27:1-31); made to bear His own cross, until, for very faintness, He could bear it no longer (Mark 15:21). He was then crucified between thieves, dying the most accursed death (Gal 3:13), which, to Him, was more than all the rest. He, in His human apprehension, was forsaken of God, crying out, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matt 27:46).
