Symington on Christ’s Pity for Believers

“The pity of Christians for themselves can never equal the pity with which they are regarded by their Saviour: for theirs is the pity of a corrupted nature, his of uncontaminated humanity; theirs the pity of mere human nature, his of human nature indissolubly linked with all the tender mercies of Deity.”

William Symington, On the Atonement and Intercession of Jesus Christ (Pittsburgh: United Presbyterian Board of Education, 1864), p. 287.
