Christ Alone Saves

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 1 Corinthians 1:30

When Satan chargeth sin upon the conscience, then for the soul to charge it upon Christ – that is gospel-like; that is to make Him Christ. He serves for that use. To accept Christ’s righteousness alone, His blood alone for salvation, that is the sum of the gospel. When the soul, in all duties and distresses, can say, “Nothing but Christ, Christ alone, for righteousness, justification, sanctification, redemption; not humblings, not duties, not graces, etc.” that soul hath got above the reach of the billows.Thomas Wilcocks, A Choice Drop of Honey
