Daily Gospel: 4/20/11

“Tears of sentimentality and pity are nowhere so much out of place as on Calvary. While resigning ourselves to such emotions, we mistake the Lord Jesus — nay, even degrade Him, and as regards ourselves, miss the way of salvation marked out for us by God. Hence the Savior exclaims, once for all, ‘Weep not for me!’ (Luke 23:28).”

 - F. W. Krummacher, quoted by Philip Graham Ryken in Luke (Vol 2) (Phillipsburg, NJ: P & R Publishing, 2009), 573
