10 ways in which God in Christ is a God of love #1

Here’s abridged extracts from Ebenezer Erskine’s 10 point sermon on 10 ways in which God in Christ is a God of love:

Ebenezer Erskine

1. GOD in Christ is a reconciled God, a God of peace, that has received the atonement : Q Cor. v. 19. “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.” Rom. v. 10. 11 When we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son” He both finds the ransom, and accepts of the ransom that he has found; and having accepted of the ransom, of the Surety, he proclaims himself to be ” the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ.” Oh Sirs! does not this say that God is love? what greater evidence of it could God give, than to provide a ransom, and to receive it, than to cry, “Deliver them from going down to the pit, for I have found a ransom ?”
