Sinclair Ferguson on Justification

In Uncategorized on May 11, 2006 at 8:16 pm

Probably more trouble is caused in the Christian life by an inadequate view of this doctrine than any other. When the child of God loses his sense of peace with God, finds his concern for others dried up, or generally finds his sense of the sheer goodness & grace of God diminished, it is from this fountain that he has ceased to drink. Conversely, if we can gain a solid grounding here, we have the foundation for a life of peace and joy.
