office, bloodshed, and life

Richard Baxter, quoted by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dennis Johnson in Counsel from the Cross:

Consider well of the office, the bloodshed, and the holy life of Christ — His office is to expiate sin, and to destroy it. His blood was shed for it: his life condemned it. Love Christ, and thou wilt hate that which caused his death. Love him, and thou will be made more like him.
