THE PARADOXES OF CHRIST!

      •He was the light of the world, yet He hung in darkness on the cross.
      •He was the Life, yet He poured out His soul unto death.
      •He was the Rock of Ages, and yet His feet sank into the deep waters.
      •He was holy, undefiled, separate from sinners, and knew no sin, yet he was "made sin" when He took the guilty culprit's place and suffered in his stead on the cross.
      •He bade the weary come to Him for rest, yet on earth He could find no rest until He was able to say, "It is finished," and gave up His life to God.
      •He was the mighty God, yet He became a man and was crucified through weakness.
      •He was the image of the invisible God, yet His appearance was marred more than any man.
      •He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast; yet He humbled Himself and became obedient — even unto death.
      •He won no earthly victories, yet He overcame the world.
      •He was buried in a tomb, and yet He lives today!

Can you understand these mysteries? These are the things the angels desire to look into. The heaven cannot contain Him, yet He became a man and died for us!

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of sod! How unsearchable
are His judgments and His ways past finding out! (Romans 11:33)
