“I received some years ago orders from my Master to stand at the foot of the cross until He came.
He has not come yet, but I mean to stand there till He does.
If I should disobey His orders and leave those simple truths which have been the means of the conversion of souls, I know not how I could expect His blessing.
Here, then, I stand at the foot of cross and tell out the old, old story, stale though it sound to itching ears, and worn threadbare as critics may deem it.
It is of Christ I love to speak – of Christ who loved, and lived, and died, the substitute for sinners, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.”
