Our Real Crisis is the Righteousness of God

Our real crisis is the righteousness of God, but the solution is the righteousness from God that is a free gift.  Someone wisely offered the following acronym for GRACE: “God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense.”  Jesus Christ, the Lord of the covenant who gave the law, became the representative servant of the covenant, perfectly fulfilling it and bearing its judgment in our place.
