On Vox: Notes from Alistar Begg's Justice and Love


Romans 3

God credits the righteousness of Jesus to ourselves.
The ground of our justification lies utterly outside of us.

We are not put right with God as a result of anything done by us.
We are not put right with God as a result of anything done in us.
We are put right with God as a result of something done for us.

Though I don't deserve it, and cannot earn it, God has reconciled my account.  This is radical.

In Christ, a believer is completely and once-and-for-all justified and is as accepted by God today as they will ever be.  My sin and shortcomings don't undo my righteousness than my moments of honor and endeavor cancel my guilt.

The Prodigal Son story shows us how the son is lavished upon with everything he didn't deserve, and received nothing that he did deserve.  It is an unbelievable display of God's love.  When God forgives, he does so permanently.

Allistair mentions calling AT&T and asking about a "convoluted" bill. And in this story the lady says, "I'm bringing it up...  yeah... let me just remove that for you."  With the press of a button, she says, "It's gone."

When God, in Christ, hits the proverbial delete key, it's GONE. Immediately, unconditionally, completely, and wonderfully.

Thanks for sharing this; it blessed me. For awhile I listened to his sermons in the morning as I woke up and did my stretches. He has a lot of great insights and is easy to listen to.

Love you,
Mom
