Contemplating the Cross

20110524-214229“There is only one thing I know of that crushes me to the ground and humiliates me to the dust, and this is to look at the Son of God, and especially contemplate the cross. ‘When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of Glory died, my richest gain I count but loss and pour contempt on all my pride.’ Nothing else can do it. When I see that I am a sinner…that nothing but the Son of God on the cross can save me, I’m humbled to the dust….Nothing but the cross can give us this spirit of humility.”    -D.Martyn Lloyd-Jones
