Why the Sacrifice of Jesus Isn’t Enough

R.C. Sproul with Ligonier Ministries outlines a misunderstood aspect of Christs work: his active obedience on our behalf. Is salvation accomplished merely by the sacrifice of Christ for sin?

He oversees the Christian Education ministry at Resurrection PCA in San Diego and serves as a hospice chaplain. He has an affinity for all things J.R.R. Tolkien (except the movies) and has interests in the intersections of philosophy and theology. His biggest prayer is that the gospel in all its beauty might re-kindle a wonder and joy of God’s goodness in our hearts and that our lives might adorn the gospel. Connect with Timothy on Twitter @word_water_wine.​
