Union with Christ… is the foundation of sanctification

“Union with Christ in his death and resurrection … is the foundation of sanctification in Reformed theology. It is rooted, not in humanity and their achievement of holiness or sanctification, but in what God has done in Christ, and for us in union with him. Rather than view Christians first and foremost in the microcosmic context of their own progress, the Reformed doctrine first of all sets them in the macrocosm of God’s activity in redemptive history. It is seeing oneself in this context that enables the individual Christian to grow in true holiness.”

– Sinclair Ferguson

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

  1. I am looking for fellow bloggers who are willing to write a review for my epic poem about September 11th. Specifically, I am looking for Christian bloggers who preach the gospel on their websites. You can find my poem at: http://www.september11thpoem.wordpress.com Let me know if you chose to write an article about it so that I can link to your review from my website. Thanks
