Adrian Warnock on Christ's Penal Substitution For Us on the Cross

31 Mar

This concept is taken from Romans, Isaiah 53, and elsewhere in Scripture.  It can easily be explained to a child, yet its depths continue to puzzle the professor.  A divine exchange occurred. He took our sin; we gained his righteousness.  As a result, God’s attitude toward us changed, and now we are forgiven, and the guilt of sin is washed away.  God now sees us covered in the righteousness of his Son.  With our debt paid, we come freely and boldly into the presence of a holy God.

– Adrian Warnock, Raised With Christ, p. 62-63
