Exult in Christ

“Christian exultation in God begins with the shamefaced recognition that we have no claim on him at all, continues with wondering worship that while we were still sinners and enemies Christ died for us, and ends with the humble confidence that he will complete the work he has begun. So to exult in God is to rejoice not in our privileges but in his mercies, not in our possession of him but in his of us.”

—John Stott

One response to “Exult in Christ

  1. Paul

    It’s truly enriching, empowering, inspiring, and humbling to see the gospel message articulated in it’s raw, true nature and essence.

    Too often do I believe in a watered-down, self-centered gospel message. Just goes to show how much we need to be reminded of the true beauty and form of the gospel! I know for me, I need to be reminded all the time!
