Once and For All

“We look to the law for the standard, realizing that even as Christians we fall far short of reaching it.  Just then, the Gospel steps in and tells us that someone has attained that standard, that victory, for us, in our place, and now the law can be preached again without tormenting our conscience.  It cannot provoke us to fear or anxiety, since its demands are fulfilled by someone else’s obedience.”

Michael Horton
