I this day bring unto all penitent and humble souls the glad tidings of great joy; joy which, if excess of fear and horror have not altogether stupefied and made us insensible, must needs fill us with the highest raptures of triumph and exultations. So that the question remains just as before, what that sin was which was transferred. For, besides the frightfulness of such a thing to be even imagined, it were in contradiction to the express words, "He hath made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us." And nothing that is not Divine is infinite. Very rife in our day is another gospel, which truly is not another gospel. )Enduring the curse for anotherFrom, The Yorkshire Post"About a fortnight ago a man was admitted to the Bristol Royal. What a picture of Him who cried, "My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels. But if Christ had not died for all, as well for the reprobate as the elect, this tender could not be made to all, as our Saviour commands it to be (v. 15), "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. The threatenings of the law, denouncing a curse against those who yield not personal obedience to it, did not exclude or forbid a surety to come in the sinner's room, and to undergo the curse due to him.2. They are not death's by way of punishment. And this conjunction is twofold-either natural or mystical.1st. [2] As Christ is thus conjoined to us, both naturally and mystically, so He has also given His full consent to stand in our stead, and to bear our punishment.4. If Christ has thus borne the curse for us, why should we think it much to bear the cross for Him?3. We are bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh. Hopkins, D. D.This curse is the wretched inheritance of all the guilty sons of Adam. How was it to be removed?1. And you may only further notice as to this, that the word "made" here is the same the apostle uses in the fourth verse of the next chapter, "When the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law" — made by God, of course. But Paul assuredly does not speak of anything of that kind. A captive is redeemed by a price paid only to him that holds him in bondage, but by the same act he may be redeemed from labour, from disease, from death, from the persecution of his fellow-captives, and from a slavish disposition.(Hodge. to escape the righteous judgment of God if thou continuest in thy sins and provocations? This was the agony of His death. Yea, and He is the fountain of all blessing, whence flow all our hopes and happiness. Infirmary, suffering from an affection of the throat, supposed to be diphtheria. "Made Him to be sin" — the entire expression is, "made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us." But if Christ's authority over all, as Mediator, be founded on His death, it will follow that, as His authority is over all, so His death was for all; otherwise He must exercise His jurisdiction over those persons over whom He hath no right nor title.III. There is; for, behold! For, besides the frightfulness of such a thing to be even imagined, it were in contradiction to the express words, "He hath made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us." Whereby was typified unto us our redemption by Jesus Christ, who, having a body prepared for Him, is now become near of kin unto us, and is not ashamed to call us brethren. Beyond all doubt the meaning is, Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, having borne that curse — been made the curse of the law for us. What a picture of Christ made a curse, enduring the fire of "the wrath of God revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men!" (2) In the sufferings of Jesus Christ, God manifests the glory both of His justice and mercy, and with infinite wisdom reconciles them one with the other. But yet, notwithstanding, every one whom God afflicts must not be esteemed as cursed by Him. (a)Christ was free from all personal sin, whether of corruption of nature or transgression of life. When Adam sinned the great curse that was invoked was the one that was threatened beforehand. Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” Read verse in New International Version Christ the sufferer must be Christ the Redeemer.2. I answer, God cannot properly be said to satisfy Himself; for that would be the same thing as to pardon, simply, without any satisfaction. We proceed to make the following INFERENCES:1. The nature of Christ's satisfaction. (John Flavel. For the righteous God will bring His curse on no guiltless one. (2ndly) That satisfaction might be made to offended justice in the same nature which transgressed; that as it was man which sinned, so man also might be punished. )Christ stood for the "every one who continueth not," by becoming the "very one" who hung upon the tree.(M. Here He is coming under the load of their sin, and God does not spare Him, but smites Him as He must have smitten us, lays His full vengeance on Him, launches all His thunderbolts against Him, bids the curse wreak itself upon Him, and Christ suffers all, sustains all.IV. Is it consistent with the justice of God to punish an innocent person for the sins of those that are guilty? In order, therefore, that He may be able to suffer for sin, He must be human; and in order that He may be able to take away the sins, and to satisfy God's justice for them, He must be Divine.4. Our first position then is, that it is the curse of God "which the apostle says Christ was made, and God Himself who made Him that curse.II. This was the agony of His death. "As it is written, cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree."II. Now from this curse Christ frees the believer; that is, He dissolves the obligation to punishment, cancels the hand-writing, looses all the bonds and chains of guilt, so that the curse of the law hath nothing to do with him for ever.2. For Christ, by an altogether peculiar Divine constitution — of infinite grace alike on the Father's part and on His own — had become the Head of His body the Church, — taken their place in law — become one with them in law for ever. Jesus Christ has undertaken and accomplished this great work.6. But the wonder ceases, or rather is turned into another wonder of holy admiration, when we find that the only possible way of our deliverance from sin, was the Redeemer's taking it, in its whole guilt and curse into His own person — being made sin and a curse for us. Then, the wondrous settlement of that quarrel (ver. For if His own Son, dear to Him as His own essence, could not escape, when He only stood in the place of sinners, how thinkest thou, O wretch! Behold here the very soul of the Lord's Supper, which might have for its motto, "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us," — "This is My body broken for you: this cup is My blood of the new covenant, shed for remission of the sins of many." Salvation becomes an actual and personal blessing through the ministration of the Spirit. Well does the Greek liturgy put in, "Thine unknown sufferings," for they must for ever remain beyond guess of human imagination. )Suffering, redemption, blessingRichard Nicholls.I. 10, God's quarrel with guilty men — "As many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them." For those very sufferings of thy Saviour, which were an expiation for the sins of the whole world, were all of them tendered to the Father as an expiation for thine, and the full value of His infinite satisfaction belongs all of it entirely unto thee. (a)Christ was free from all personal sin, whether of corruption of nature or transgression of life. If Christ, by dying, hath made full satisfaction, then God is no loser in pardoning the greatest of sinners that believe in Jesus; and consequently His justice can be no bar to their justification and salvation. The doctrine of Christ's satisfaction is absurd, for Christ (say we) is God; if so, then God satisfies Himself, than which what can be more absurd to imagine? Those who, when offered the gospel, prefer to remain under the law (Galatians 3:10). And accordingly as any affliction or suffering tends to the promoting of these ends, so it may be said to be a curse or not.2. But see the apostle's gospel in verses 10, 13, 14, of this chapter. Manton. The burnt offering. As if to say that when God appointed the sin-offerings of the law to be carried forth outside the camp as unclean and accursed, and to be burned in the fire, it was but a figure of our Lord Jesus, laden with our accursed iniquities, made sin and a curse, numbered with the transgressors, dealt with as the vilest of all — not by man so much as by God, the Holy One of Israel — because the Lord had, with His own most free consent, made to meet on Him the iniquities of us all. The blood of the man Christ Jesus is the matter of the satisfaction; the Divine nature dignifies it, and makes it of infinite value.2. All that the law of works can do for men is to leave them still accursed.III. He who was to be the substitute for all must have the common nature of all. The operation of tracheotomy was performed by Mr. W. C. Lysaght, M.R.C.S., assistant medical officer to the Infirmary; but the tube becoming choked, the last chance of saving the man's life was for some one to apply his lips to the tube and suck the moisture. (b)Yet He was not free from all imputed sin and guilt. But if Christ's authority over all, as Mediator, be founded on His death, it will follow that, as His authority is over all, so His death was for all; otherwise He must exercise His jurisdiction over those persons over whom He hath no right nor title.III. Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society. But if Christ's authority over all, as Mediator, be founded on His death, it will follow that, as His authority is over all, so His death was for all; otherwise He must exercise His jurisdiction over those persons over whom He hath no right nor title.III. This, at the first glance of our thoughts upon it, seems very difficult, if not impossible, to be reconciled. Beyond all doubt the meaning is, Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, having borne that curse — been made the curse of the law for us. Now from this curse Christ frees the believer; that is, He dissolves the obligation to punishment, cancels the hand-writing, looses all the bonds and chains of guilt, so that the curse of the law hath nothing to do with him for ever.2. He who was to be the substitute for all must have the common nature of all. But thus I observe, once more, that we do not get at the full explanation of the mysterious fact in our text till we have taken into view the wondrous design and issue of all, as set forth in the passage thus — "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us, that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." Guilty men are under the curse; a guiltless one comes under it(1)joyfully;(2)completely.2. If the death of Christ satisfied God, and thereby redeemed the elect from the curse, then the redemption of souls is costly; souls are dear things, and of great value with God.3. If the death of Christ satisfied God, and thereby redeemed the elect from the curse, then the redemption of souls is costly; souls are dear things, and of great value with God.3. (2) It is just with God to inflict the punishment of our sins upon Christ, though innocent. Now certain it is that Christ underwent the very same punishment, for the matter and substance of it, which was due to us by the curse and threatening of the law, though it may be different in very many circumstances and modifications, according to the divers natures of the subjects on whom it was to be inflicted.
