It is always on His ” blood & righteousness” alone that we can rest

Posted: February 24, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Discipleship, The Christian Life

There is nothing in us or done by us, at any stage of our earthly development, because of which we are acceptable to God. We must always be accepted for Christ’s sake, or we cannot ever be accepted at all.

This is not true of us only when we believe. It is just as true after we have believed. It will continue to be true as long as we live. Our need of Christ does not cease with our believing; nor does the nature of our relation to Him or to God through Him ever alter, no matter our attainments in Christian graces or our achievements in behavior may be. It is always on His ” blood & righteousness” alone that we can rest.

B.B. Warfield, Works vol VII pg 113
