Scripture at Sunrise 4.23.09

“Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.”  -Romans 5:9

“Our deliverance from the law is a rescue from its curse and its bondage, and so relates to the two particular functions of justification and sanctification. In both areas we are under grace, not law. For justification we look to the cross, no the law, and for sanctification to the Spirit, not the law. It is only by the Spirit that the law can be fulfilled in us.”

—John Stott, The Message of Romans (Downers Grove, Ill: InterVarsity Press,  1994)
