The Verdict Is In

Tullian Tchividjian wrote the following article about judgment and grace; how Jesus has already paid the price of us. You can read the whole article here.

My favorite 2 quotes:

Both the Bible and our experience teach us that where judgment reigns relationships are ruined.

The Gospel announces that Jesus came to acquit the guilty. He came to judge and be judged in our place. Christ came to satisfy the deep judgment against us once and for all so that we could be free from the judgement of God, others, and ourselves. He came to give rest to our efforts at trying to deal with judgment on our own. Colossians 2:13-14 announces, “And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.
