Some wise words from B. B. Warfield

B. B. Warfield, Professor of Theology at Princeton Seminary from 1887 until 1921 said it well, “The marvel of marvels is not that God, in His infinite love, has not elected all this guilty race to be saved, but that He has elected any.” In other words, the difficult question is not so much “How can a loving God send anyone to hell?” but “How can a holy God allow any sinner into heaven?”

That last question is answered for us in 2 Corinthians 5:21: “For our sake he [God the Father] made him [Christ] to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him [Christ] we might become the righteousness of God.” At the cross, Christ took all the just punishment for our sins upon Himself, that we might have His righteousness placed in our account. I, for one, am amazed at the bountiful grace of God that has been poured out upon us in Jesus Christ.

Tomorrow, take the time to gather with God’s people to worship our gracious Triune God.
