Then, again, with the place there has been a complete change in His employment. He was here to found His kingdom and to make atonement. He is there to carry out the results of that atonement and to reign. His office was represented by the high priest of old, who first in the outer court offered the sacrifice, and p. 7afterwards went in before the mercy-seat to sprinkle the blood. So Christ Jesus here on earth offered Himself as the sacrifice, and now He is gone into the holy of holies there to present the blood before the mercy-seat of God. Thus He is described by St. Peter (Acts, v. 31) as being exalted to be a 鈥淧rince and a Saviour;鈥 a Prince, because He is exalted as King of kings and Lord of lords; a Saviour, because as a living friend, He is saving those whom, when on earth, He redeemed by His blood. Every passage, therefore, which describes Him in His present condition, represents Him as in the possession of living power. Sometimes He is said to be reigning, as (1 Cor. xv. 25), 鈥淗e must reign till He hath put all enemies under His feet.鈥 Sometimes we see Him as the Priest (Heb. iv. 14), 鈥淪eeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God.鈥 Sometimes He is the Advocate (1 John, ii. 1, 2), 鈥淚f any man sin we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;鈥 and sometimes He is the loving Friend, watching the struggles of His faithful disciples, and waiting to welcome His dying servant in the solemn moments of his rough and stormy martyrdom. p. 8鈥淏ehold,鈥 said Stephen, 鈥淚 see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God;鈥 and so, having seen it, he followed up the vision by the dying prayer, 鈥淟ord Jesus, receive my spirit.鈥 (Acts, vii. 56.).

II. This then being, I trust, clear, our next subject will be the object of the ministry; and this is taught very clearly in the words,鈥斺淭he p. 52ministry of reconciliation.鈥 The reconciliation of the sinner to God is the great result, to attain which God founded the ministry. The question has been raised whether, by the reconciliation here mentioned, is meant the reconciliation of God to the sinner, or the reconciliation of the sinner to God. Surely both are included. In our guilty and ruined condition there is a double enmity. Man, through his corruption, is at enmity with God; and God, through His righteousness, is at enmity with rebellious man. And as there is a double enmity through sin, so, likewise, is there a double reconciliation through Christ. God, His law being satisfied, is reconciled to the sinner; and the sinner, his heart being changed, is reconciled unto God..
