Meditations on Christ the Redeemer

Is Christ your high priest, and His priesthood so indispensably necessary to your salvation? Then freely acknowledge your impotency to reconcile yourselves to God by anything you can do or suffer, and let Christ have the whole glory of your recovery ascribed to Him. It is highly reasonable that He that laid down the whole price should have the whole praise. If any man think or say he could have made an atonement for himself, he doth therein cast no light reproach upon that profound wisdom which laid the design of our redemption in the death of Christ.

John Flavel (1627–1691)
