I find then the perfectness of the love of the Saviour.  His rejection only served as a means of expressing His love still further.  Mark the reality of this expression as meeting all our case.  Were we lying in death?  He puts himself into it.  Did we deserve the cup of wrath?  He takes and drinks it.  Was all the power of Satan against us?  He goes into it and breaks it.  Christ does not say, You come to Me properly, and then I will help you.  No; He comes down into it all; He does not seek to escape;  He does not turn away from the insults and violence of men, but, through them all, He offers Himself without spot to God.
