Ebenezer Erskine on what it means to be justified


Ebenezer Erskine

Here’s a little extract from another Ebenezer Erskine sermon, this time on the wonders of what it means to be justified.

It is God that justifies, who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, yea, rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us: he becomes an everlasting Father to the poor creature, and puts it among the children, making it an heir of God, and a joint heir with himself, and says to it, “Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me “My Father”?” He puts the beauty of his own holiness upon the soul, and makes it like “the king’s daughter, all glorious within,” like the embroideries of needle-work he makes it ” like the wings of a dove, covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
