Our guilt is in…

Quote

Our guilt is intolerable, unbearable. If we have to answer for what we’ve done, we’ll be crushed…What makes our unbearable guilt go away? Who can bear it for us?…In the gospel Jesus says to us, “I am the willing scapegoat of the world. At my cross, it’s my professional business to be crushed under the unbearable guilt of others. It’s my role to bear away other people’s guilt. That’s what I do, because I love guilty people. If you’ll trust me, here’s the deal. My only guilt will be yours, and your only righteousness will be mine.” – Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. on Isaiah 53

This was just too good not to pass along. Enjoy.

It Disarms Us

Quote

“Let this be your life: Ponder Him; be pervaded with Him; point to Him. The more you know of Him, the more you admire the fullness of His beauty, the more you will reflect Him. O that there would be thousands of irresistible reflections of the beauty of Jesus. May it be said of such reflections, ‘It disarms us. It takes away our arguments.'” – John Piper
