Pristine Grace

The Best Man
by Charles Spurgeon
The Best Man

    It seems to me that the best and most tender duty that Christians do for their Lord Jesus, is that which is touched with the bloodmark — which bears the stamp of the cross.

    The best preaching is, "We preach Christ crucified!"

    The best living is, "We are crucified with Christ!"

    The best man, is a crucified man!

    The more we live beholding our Lord's unutterable griefs, and understanding how He has fully put away our sin — the more holiness we shall produce.

    The more we dwell where the cries of Calvary can be heard — where we can view Heaven, and earth, and Hell, all moved by His wondrous suffering — the nobler will our lives become.

    Nothing puts life into men, like a dying Savior!

    Come, let us slay sin — for Christ was slain.

    Come, let us bury all our pride — for Christ was buried.

    Come, let us rise to newness of life — for Christ has risen.

    Let us be united with our crucified Lord in His one great objective. Let us live and die with Him — and then every action of our lives will be very beautiful.
