Christ’s Incarnation

“In consequence of His assumption of the human nature, the wisdom of God is displayed to the uttermost, and His law is magnified and made honorable.  In consequence of this, the law is honored with perfect obedience in the same nature that disobeyed it; the curse is endured in the same nature that deserved it; divine justice is complelely satisfied in the same nature that offended it; God is glorified by the same nature that came short of His glory; Satan is conquered by the same nature that he overcame; death is endured in the same nature that was doomed to die; and the inheritance of eternal life was purchased in the same nature that lost it.  In this the glory of divine wisdom shines with transcendent luster”.

– From John Colquhoun’s “Sermons on Important Doctrines”, P.16
