Our #salvation is that God brought light out of darkness, not we; that God brought righteousness out of unrighteousness, not we; that God brought life out of death, not we. God is true. He is true as He became manifest in Christ. Him, God sent into death. Him, He raised from the dead. In Him, He revealed a righteousness with which we can appear before God, a righteousness that is of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Believe in Christ. Believe in Him. That is, throw away all that is of self, something that we must do every day. It is not so easy to believe in Christ. Every day we must throw away all that is of self. When everything that is of self has been cast away, we will cast ourselves on Christ. Casting ourselves on Christ, we will be clothed with His righteousness, and we will say, “We then, being justified by faith, have peace with God through our Lord #Jesus #Christ.” - Herman Hoeksema
