the center of the Gospel

07/06/2010

It is the death of Christ through which He satisfied the justice of God and averted from us the wrath of God that is the basis of all God’s promises of forgiveness.  We must be careful that, in preaching the gospel to ourselves, we do not preach a gospel without a cross.  We must be careful that we do not rely on the so-called unconditional love of God without realizing that His love can only flow to us as a result of Christ’s atoning death.

-from The Discipline of Grace, by Jerry Bridges
