The Cross Overcomes All the Enemies of Joy

“Here in the cross is where every enemy of joy is overcome:

  • Divine wrath, as he becomes a curse for us;
  • Real guilt, as he becomes forgiveness for us;
  • Lawbreaking, as he becomes righteousness for us;
  • Estrangement from God, as he becomes reconciliation for us;
  • Slavery to Satan, as he becomes redemption for us;
  • Bondage to sin, as he becomes liberation for us;
  • Pangs of conscience, as he becomes cleansing for us;
  • Death, as he becomes the resurrection for us;
  • Hell, as he becomes eternal life for us.”

C.H. Spurgeon
