We cannot be too attentive to those terms, as they refer to the original curse pronounced on the fall of our first parents, and those curses again proclaimed at the giving of the law on mount Sinai, as the penalty of disobedience. For the proper apprehension of our whole nature being involved in the guilt and condemnation of them, and our total inability to help ourselves, will from a means, under divine teaching, to discover how Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of both, being made "a curse for us." (Galatians 3:13) The whole plan and purpose of redemption turns upon this hinge. Every thing that is blessed and consolatory in redemption is founded in this. Faith looks to Jesus for deliverance from all. And the apostle's hymn of praise becomes the hymn of every regenerated believer, that "as sin hath reigned unto death, even so doth grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 5:21)
