Someone recently shared a quote online from my book Raised With Christ. I thought I’d share it with you as a not-too-subtle reminder to consider buying someone a book about Easter this Christmas!
Salvation is not merely a case of believing in something that happened thousands of years ago. We are not saved by a belief. We are saved by union with a person. We cannot separate the propitiatory work of Christ from Christ himself. We are saved not only by believing the fact that Christ died for our sins, but by union with the crucified and risen, exalted Savior. Only through union with a living Savior who has in him the virtue of his atoning death do justification, forgiveness, and all the blessings of redemption become ours. “In him, we have redemption through his blood.” (Ephesians 1:7).”
