of God

The gospel of God is He, Himself. It is to lift Him up. We always think it's to bring Him down—to reduce Him to man's understanding. Alas, this is wrong! God must be lifted up in all His glory so that man can see all of his sin. God is the light which revealeth our every sin, even to the deepest darkest corners, and He must therefore be “turned on” brightly.

Men cannot repent if they don't first see their sin. Men cannot see their sin if they don't first see Holiness. God is the only Holy! Men cannot repent if they don't see God lifted up, rather than attempted to be brought down to our fouled and corrupted human understanding.
