Krummacher: “Draw nigh to Jesus”

Above all things, therefore, let us draw nigh to Jesus as our sole and everlasting High Priest, as our Mediator, Surety, and Ransom. “Without shedding of blood there is no remission.” “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.” The saints above “have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” O delay no longer, therefore, to follow their example! Jesus, in his crown of thorns and bleeding wounds, must be the object of your love and the ground of your hope, or else he is nothing to you, and you are in danger of eternal perdition.

-Krummacher, The Suffering Saviour, 15
