Thomas E. Peck on Christ the power of God unto salvation

Reformed Covenanter

Christ crucified, Christ made a curse for us, Christ magnifying the law and making it honourable, Christ rising again for our justification and making perpetual intercession for us, Christ the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last, the all and in all; this is “the wisdom of God and the power of God to salvation.”

It is the exhibition of sovereign grace in him, a grace bestowed freely, without money and without price; a grace which fixed upon the sinner before he was born and had done either good or evil; a grace which disdains commixture not only with human merit, but with human works; which lays the foundation and brings out the topstone; which imparts, develops and completes the principle of spiritual life—it is the exhibition of sovereign grace like this which brings the penitent prodigals of mankind back to their Father’s house, with the confession, “We have sinned.”

For the reference, see Thomas E. Peck on Christ the power of God unto salvation.
