The Sweet Cross of Christ

Samuel Rutherford

“God forgive them that raise an ill report upon the sweet cross of Christ. It is but our weak and dim eyes, and our looking only to the black side, that makes us mistake. Those who can take that crabbed tree handsomely upon their back, and fasten it on cannily, shall find it such a burden as wings unto a bird or sails to a ship.”

– Samuel Rutherford, from Letters of Samuel Rutherford, p. 43.
