Jesus has done it all

“The gospel is saying that, what man cannot do in order to be accepted with God, this God Himself has done for us in the person of Jesus Christ. To be acceptable to God we must present to God a life of perfect and unceasing obedience to his will. The gospel declares that Jesus has done this for us. For God to be righteous he must deal with our sin. This also he has done for us in Jesus. The holy law of God was lived out perfectly for us by Christ, and its penalty was paid perfectly for us by Christ. The living and dying of Christ for us, and this alone is the basis of our acceptance with God”

Graeme Goldsworthy, Gospel and Kingdom, p. 86

(HT: John Fonville)

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.

One thought on “Jesus has done it all

  1. Amen nothing as men or women can we do anything to Save ourselves, Only by God and God Alone; but as Christians;We should want to serve Him the best we can EVEN though nothing of us that can make Him draw us closer or make us closer, Thank God for His Grace through Jesus Christ, and another thing God never moves, Man and his flesh wanders but when the Holy Spirit show us these things God hand is still there covering us =) Nice Post !!
    Sorry I am not in the best of health at the moment but hope my reply is understandable.
