-The Satisfaction of Christ, ch. xii, by Arthur W. Pink
"I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins." -Isaiah 43:25
"For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." -II Corinthians 5:21
"Who is a God like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?" -Micah 7:18a
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus” ...Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?"
Hast Thou, O Father, put to grief
Thy spotless Son for me?
And will the righteous Judge of men
Condemn me for that debt of sin
Which, Lord, was laid on Thee?
If Thou hast my discharge procured,
And freely in my place endured
The whole of wrath Divine;
Payment God cannot twice demand
First at my bleeding Surety’s hand,
And then again at mine.
Complete atonement Thou hast made,
And to the utmost farthing paid,
What e’er Thy people owed;
How then can wrath on me take place,
If sheltered in Thy righteousness,
And sprinkled with Thy blood?
Turn, then, my soul, unto thy rest,
The merits of thy great High Priest
Speak peace and liberty.
Trust in His efficacious blood,
Nor fear thy banishment from God,
Since Jesus died for thee." -Augustus Toplady
