Bonar: His work

Friday, March 30, 2018
    Good Friday
    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
    —Romans 1:16-17 (KJV)
    Faith is the acknowledgment of the entire absence of all goodness in us, and the recognition of the cross as the substitute for all the want on our part... The whole work is His, not ours, from first to last.
    ... Horatius Bonar (1808-1889), The Everlasting Righteousness, London: James Nisbet and Co., 1873, p. 116-117 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 1:16-17; Ps. 148:13; Rom. 3:23; 2 Cor. 4:15; 1 John 1:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot boast in anything save the Cross.
