some writing by Christians, some reading for everyone.
Simul Justus et Peccator : UGA Grad : a disciple whom Jesus loves
His crown for my shame
His reward for my blame
My hell for His home
My rags for His robe
His blessing for my grief
My curse for His peace
His righteousness for my sin
I’m accepted, He was condemned.
“This is that mystery which is rich in divine grace to sinners: wherein by a wonderful exchange our sins are no longer ours but Christ’s, and the righteousness of Christ not Christ’s but ours. He has emptied himself of his righteousness that he might clothe us with it and fill us with it; and he has taken our evils upon himself that he might deliver us from them.” (Martin Luther)
