Excerpt from The Consolations of the Cross: Addresses on the Seven Words of the Dying Lord, Given at S. Stephen's Church Boston, on Good Friday, 1902, Together With Two Sermons
We are going to consider Christ in His suf ferings rather than the sufferings of Christ. The contemplation of Christ's sufferings can easily become a trap for emotional and morbid natures to shut men out from Him. Too often the preacher has made the Pas sion the centre of interest and the Person of Christ the incident, whereas Christ is all in all, and the Passion a background throw ing Him into relief. His personality is that which must enchain our attention as we try to relate ourselves afresh to Him, so that we shall receive new strength and hope to take up again our lives and our work.
