Passion Week

“But in Passion Week, as I was reading Bishop Wilson on the Lord’s Supper, I met with an expression to this effect — ‘That the Jews knew what they did, when they transferred their sin to the head of their offering.’  The thought came into my mind, What, may I transfer all my guilt to another?  Has God provided an Offering for me, that I may lay my sins on His head?  Then, God willing, I will not bear them on my own soul one moment longer.  Accordingly I sought to lay my sins upon the sacred head of Jesus.”

Charles Simeon, quoted in Handley C. G. Moule, Charles Simeon (London, 1956), pages 25-26.

Jesus Christ has become the atoning sacrifice for our sins. My guilt and sin have been transferred to Him.
