Scripture at Sunrise 5.7.09

“Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.” –Romans 5:18

“The voice that spells forgiveness will say: ‘You may go: you have been let off the penalty which your sin deserves.’  But the verdict which means acceptance [justification] will say: ‘You may come; you who are welcome to all my love and my presence.’ “

—Sir Marcus Loane, quoted in John Stott, The Message of Romans (Downers Grove, Ill: InterVarsity Press,  1994), 110
