Christ our Substitute

Already Not Yet is the new blog of Peter Cockrell, pastor of the church we are attending in Worthing. He quotes Leon Morris, who writes words that very effectively describe how I reflected yesterday, being Good Friday...

“To put it bluntly and plainly, if Christ is not my Substitute, I still occupy the place of a condemned sinner. If my sins and my guilt are not transferred to Him, if he did not take them upon Himself, then surely they remain with me. If He did not deal with my sins, I must face their consequences. If my penalty was not borne by Him, it still hangs over me. There is no other possibility.”

From The Cross in the New Testament by Leon Morris
