Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 08, 2012 (faith, salvation, and justification)


Easter Sunday
faith, salvation,
and justification

nine bloodroot
(and the harvest continues)

“There is something inexpressibly pleasing
to a justified mind to know that God
has all the honor in our salvation,
and we have none;
to know that God’s honor is not violated,
but on the contrary, shines more illustrious;
to know that God’s law is not injured,
but magnified and made honorable;
to know that we are safe,
and God has all the glory.”
- Robert Murray M’Cheyne

“This is the rock where we stand
when the dark clouds gather
and the floods lick at our feet:
justification is by grace alone
(not mixed with our merit),
through faith alone
(not mixed with our works)
on the basis of Christ alone
(not mingling his righteousness with ours),
to the glory of God alone
(not ours).
- John Piper
