Here’s a great line from one of Warfield’s Princeton sermons. The text he was preaching on was Philippians 3.9: …and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ– the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith (NIV).
“The Gospel, to Paul, consists precisely in this: that we do nothing to earn our salvation or to secure it for ourselves. God in Christ does it all.”
Good news indeed – and Amen!
