It’s Christ that Saves

Posted: March 13, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity

“Faith is nothing but the instrument or the channel by which this righteousness of God in Christ becomes ours. It is not faith that saves us. What saves us is the Lord Jesus Christ and His perfect work. It is the death of Christ upon Calvary’s Cross that saves us. It is His perfect life that saves us. It is His appearing on our behalf in the presence of God that saves us. It is God putting Christ’s righteousness to our account that saves us.”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (Romans – Atonement And Justification)
