Meditations on Christ the Redeemer

“Christ, by His life and death, merited so much for us, because the same Person that so lived and died for us was God as well as Man; and every action that He did, and every passion that He suffered, was done and suffered by Him that was God as well as man. And hence it is that Christ, of all persons in the world, is so fit—yea, only fit—to be my Redeemer, Mediator, and Surety, because He alone is both God and man in one Person.”

William Beveridge (1637–1708)
