Everlasting Righteousness

PDF EBook by Horatius Bonar

EBook Description

Although he's a vastly better at writing hymns that at writing books, this is still worth a once- PDFover. Everlasting Righteousness PDF EBook Bonar goes through some of the basics of the faith as they relate to, well, everlasting righteousness. While his writing can at times be a bit elaborate, or even labyrinthine, he's still a solid enough writer.

A sampling of quotes (sorry, I read the Kindle edition so no page numbers):

"Man, in his natural spirit of self-justifying legalism, has tried to get away from the cross of Christ and its perfection, or to erect another cross instead, or to set up a screen of ornaments between himself and it, or to alter its true meaning into something more congenial to his tastes, or to transfer the virtue of it to some act or performance or feeling of its own. Thus the simplicity of the cross is nullified, and its saving power is denied.

For the cross saves completely, or not at all. Our faith does not divide the work of salvation between itself and the cross. it is the acknowledgement that the cross alone saves, and that it saves alone. Faith adds nothing to the cross, nor to it healing virtue. It owns the fullness, and sufficiency, and suitableness of the work done there, and bids the toiling spirit cease from its labors and enter into rest. Faith does not come to Calvary to do anything. It comes to see the glorious spectacle of all things done, and to accept this completion without a misgiving as to its efficacy. it listens to the 'it is finished!' of the Sin-bearer, and says 'Amen.' Where faith begins, there labor ends..."

"It is in simply believing—feeble as our faith may be—that we are invested with this righteousness. For faith is no work, nor merit, nor effort; download; but the cessation from all these ,and the acceptance in place of them of what another has done—done completely, and forever. The simplest, feeblest faith suffices; for it is not the excellence of our act of faith that does aught for us, but the excellence of Him who suffered for sin, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God. His perfection suffices to cover not only that which is imperfect in our characters and lives, but that which is imperfect in our faith, when we believe on His name."

"We are never done with the cross, nor ever shall be. Its wonders will be always new, and always fraught with joy."

"We are bought with a price, that we may be new creatures in Christ Jesus. We are forgiven, that we may be like Him who forgives us. We are set at liberty and brought out of prison, that we may be holy. The free, boundless love of God, pouring itself into us, expands and elevates our whole being, and we serve Him, not in order to win His favour, but because we have already won it in simply believing His record concerning His Son."

"To take the sacrificial element out of the blood, is to make peace with God impossible, because unrighteous. To substitute the church for Christ, or the priest for the herald of pardon, or the rite for the precious blood, or the sacrament for the living Christ upon the throne, or the teachings of the church for the enlightenment of the Holy Ghost—this is to turn light into darkness, and then to call that darkness 'light.'"
