Irresistible Attractions

“The crucified Christ has irresistible attractions. When He stoops into the utmost suffering and scorn, even the brutal must relent. A living Savior men may love, but a crucified Savior they must love. If they perceive that He loved them and gave Himself for them, their hearts are stolen away. The city of Mansoul is captured before the siege begins, when the Prince Emmanuel uncovers the beauties of His dying love before the eyes of rebellious ones.”
- Charles Spurgeon, The Power of the Cross of Christ

This is the most beautiful description I have ever heard of Jesus Christ's crucifixion.
