The God Who Is There

April 27, 2011

Trevin Wax gives the excerpt from D. A. Carson’s, The God Who Is There: Finding Your Place in God’s Story, on how God bled for us:

When Paul commends faith, what he is wanting from us is a God-given ability to perceive what God has done

– by hanging Jesus on the cross,
– reconciling us to Himself,
– setting aside His own just wrath,
– demonstrating His love,
– and declaring us just even though we are not,
because the righteousness of Christ Jesus is now counted as ours
and our sin is now counted as His.

And Paul has anchored this in God’s gracious self-disclosure
across enormous tracts of time,
across the Bible’s entire storyline,
climaxing in the shattering reality that the God who made us,
the God who is our Judge,
bled and died for us and rose again.
