What We’ve Got Coming To Us

cruciform worshipLet this set your heart to worship this Lord’s Day:

“Everything that is coming to us from God comes through Christ Jesus.

Christ Jesus has won our pardon;

he has reconciled us to God;

he has canceled our sin;

he has secured the gift of the Spirit for us;

he has granted eternal life to us and promises us the life of the consummation;

he has made us children of the new covenant;

his righteousness has been accounted as ours;

he has risen from the dead,

and all of God’s sovereignty is mediated through him

and directed to our good and to God’s glory.”

– D. A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation (Grand Rapids, Mi.: Baker Book House, 1992), 189. (bold emphasis mine)
