A red-hot lie

"Often the doctrine of 'Christ for me' appears common, well known, having nothing new in it; and I am tempted to pass it by and go to some scripture more taking. This is the devil again -- a red-hot lie. 'Christ for us' is ever new, ever glorious. 'Unsearchable riches of Christ' -- an infinite object, and the only one for a guilty soul."
