.....He stood alone, for who could have stood with Him?  He bore the wrath of God alone; He traveled in solitude down into "the rough valley that had neither been eared nor sown," and there He settled forever the question of our sins.  With this we had nothing to do, though to this we are eternally indebted for everything.  He fought the fight and gained the victory alone, but He divides the spoils with us.  He was in solitude "in the horrible pit and miry clay;" but directly He planted His foot on the everlasting "rock" of resurrection, He associates us with Him.  He uttered the cry alone; He sings the "new song" in company. (Psalm xl. 2, 3.) 
     Now the question is, shall we refuse to suffer from the hand of man with Him who suffered from the hand of God for us?.....
