The Work of Christ

“All this world’s religions are based on human achievement. Biblical Christianity alone recognizes divine accomplishment—the work of Christ on humankind’s behalf—as the sole basis of salvation. Christ’s death on the cross paid the price of our sin (1 Cor. 15: 3), and His resurrection revealed that He had conquered death (v. 20). Salvation is not a merit system in which people can earn favor with God. No one could ever do enough good works to gain acceptance by God (Rom. 3: 10–18). Even the law of Moses did not make people righteous; it was given to show how sinful and disobedient we really are (v. 20)…God through His grace imputes to believers the righteousness of Christ (vv. 21–24). On that basis alone they can stand before Him.” -John MacArthur, The Gospel According To Jesus
