Gordon: the full consequences of atonement

Monday, July 8, 2024
    It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence.
    —2 Corinthians 4:13-14 (NIV)
    We hold that in its ultimate consequences the atonement affects the body as well as the soul of man. Sanctification is the consummation of Christ’s redemptive work for the soul; and resurrection is the consummation of his redemptive work for the body. And these meet and are fulfilled at the coming and kingdom of Christ.
    ... A. J. Gordon (1836-1895), The Ministry of Healing, Boston: H. Gannett, 1883, p. 18 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 4:13-14; John 5:28-29; Rom. 8:11; 1 Cor. 6:14; 15:20-21; 2 Cor. 5:1; Phil. 3:10-11,21; 1 Thess. 4:14-17; Rev. 20:4-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your will cannot be changed.
