Godfrey on Sin and the Cross

“Do you begin to see the love of the Savior in this? Do you see the cost of the cross? Do you see what it takes for sin to be forgiven? Remember that quote from Robert McAfee Brown: ‘I like sinning and God likes forgiving, and the world is well put together’? What a tragic lie. What a demeaning of the Savior. But we tend to live like that, don’t we? I’m a Christian, so I can sneak in a little sin, because it’s all been paid for. Sin upon sin upon sin upon sin upon sin, all laid on the Savior on the cross. It is no trivial thing.”

W. Robert Godfrey in Holy, Holy, Holy
