Contemplate the Cross

October 20, 2010

I came across this quote from the Reformed theologian, Francis Turretin. I couldn’t help but think that were we to spend more of our time contemplating The Passion, we would be less concerned and driven by our own passions – whatever they may be.

“As the suffering of Christ is the principal part of the ransom paid for us by him and the special foundation of our confidence and consolation, it should also be the primary object of our faith and the theme of meditation, that with Paul we may count all things for loss but the knowledge of the crucified Jesus. We should attend to it more diligently as Satan the more impotently rages to obscure the truth of those sufferings and to deprive us of their saving fruit.”

– Francis Turretin
