I just came across this, which I thought was well put (as many of Ryle’s thoughts are).
See the Lord Jesus Christ despised and rejected of men, scourged, mocked, and insulted–look at Him bleeding on the cross of Calvary–hear Him crying in agony, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Note how the sun was darkened, and the rocks shook at the sight; and then consider, young men, what must be the evil and guilt of sin.
