From Desiring God’s Instagram account
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.
And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.”
If we can do anything to earn our salvation, then Christ died for no reason.
Are you working to achieve heaven? To achieve goodness? To achieve forgiveness?
God is holy, we are not.
Christ died and ROSE AGAIN! So, He alone has power over sin, death, and eternity.
His righteousness covers us, only if we have faith in Him. That is, that we are totally and completely dependent on Him. Nothing else. We bring nothing.
“Hallelujah! All I have is Christ!”
Soli Deo Gloria!
