J.I. Packer on Justification by Faith

The Friday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.


“The judge declares guilty sinners immune from punishment and righteousness in his sight. The great exchange is no legal fiction, no arbitrary pretense, no mere word-game on God’s part, but a costly achievement.”

– J.I. Packer in Honoring the People of God, the Collected Short Writings of J.I. Packer (Vol. 4, pg. 227)



Happy Reformation Day!
