The gospel of grace announces that Jesus came to acquit the guilty – He came to judge and be judged in our place. Christ came to satisfy the deep judgment against us once and for all so that we could be free from the judgment of God, others, and ourselves. He came to give rest to our efforts at trying to deal with judgment on our own. The gospel declares that Jesus atoned for our guilt and that the Law has been fulfilled.
