JESUS WAS DELIVERED FOR OUR OFFESESBY REV. HERY BROUGHAMPREACHED GOOD FRIDAY EVEIG, 1830. ROMAS, lY. 25. He was delivered for our offences. Among the various devices by which affection loves to perpetuate the remem- brance of a beloved object now removed from sight, none has been more general, none is more gratifying to the human feelings, than the setting apart certain seasons, in which they are in a peculiar manner present to memory : and most particularly, those days, which have formed marked periods in the history of ourselves and families. The mother will never pass unnoticed the birth-day of her deceased child : the widowed heart can never forget the day when '* the desire of her eyes was re- moved at a stroke:" and however present the memory of these lost ones may be I I at other seasons of the year, there will be, on these days especially, a pouring out of the feehngs, a yearning of the heart, which almost bursts through the gates of the tomb, and, for the moment, re-unites the mourning friend with the departed. Then will tenacious memory recal with graphic precision, every minu-
tia of the days gone by, and pause on every incident, which the diamond-pin of affection has engraven on her tablets. To these general and natural feelings of the human mind, our church appeals when she appoints particular seasons for the contemplation of those events in the history of our redemption, which addresa themselves peculiarly to the hearts, and feelings, and sensibilities of the Christian. At every season of the year, Christ crucified should be the first and dearest object of our thoughts, but surely we awake with a new emotion — we, in a manner, realize the dying agonies of him " who suffered for our offences" on. this day which commemorates his death; which commemorates the most awful, most sublime, most heart-stirring event/ which even the power of God could per- form — the Creator dying for the sins of the creature. Ob ! Jet us leave for a while the busii I SERMO IV. 39 ness and the pleasures, the noise and tumult of the world, and follow the pro- cession that moved from Pilate's judg- ment-hall ; oh say, '* Is it nothing to you, all, ye that pass by?" " Is there any sorrow like unto his sorrow wherewith the Lord afflicted bim in the day of his fierce anger," when all the sins of mankind were made to meet together, as it were, in our load of guilt ^ when the '' Lord laid upon him the ini- 2uity of us all ;" when all the wrath of
rod against sin, when all the vengeance of justice against transgression, all the abhorrence of infinite purity against the defilement of iniquity, were brought to a focus ; all the burning rays of divine  judgment brought to one point, and that point hurled against the unsheltered head of him, who stood as the sinner's substitute ! Yes : — " He was wounded for our transgressions ; he was bruised for our ini- quities, the chastisement of aur peace was upon him;" the just one was delivered for the unjust ; and he who " knew no sin was made a sin-offering for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." Yes: such an High Priest became us, and such an one alone could offer an atonement commensurate with I our guilt : for he had not, as the Jewish Priests, to offer up atonement for him- self, and then for the sins of others ; but i pure and spotless, the Lamb of God i could take away the sin of the world : — I not only " bearing their iniquities," like the typical scape-goat, " into the land ' of forgetfulness ;" but imputing to them i the inlinite merit of his own perfection, of his own obedience unto death, eyen ] the death of the cross. " o man," saith the Lord, " can by ! any means redeem his brother, or give \ to God a ransom for him :" and why? Because all that mortal man could oner j or could endure, would be insufficient to wipe away one stain of his own guilt ; far ' less could it be imputed to another. But ¦when Jesus once suffered for sins, and
