It is and always will be because of him

A gospel quote from James Buchanan in R.C. Sproul’s Justified by Faith Alone

… the righteousness of Christ considered as the merit of his mediatorial work must ever continue, even when it is imputed to us, to belong primarily, and, in one important respect, exclusively to him by whom alone that work was accomplished.  It is his righteousness in a sense in which it can never be ours.  It is his, as having been wrought out by him; and it is ours, only as it is imputed to us.

(HT: Dan Orr)

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