Donald Grey Barnhouse on Salvation

The late Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse writes:

“There is one thing which separates Christianity from all other religions. The root of every other system of religion that is known to man through history or through anthropology is some sort of system of good works. The root of Christianity is not present tense, but in a past tense. Everything is done for us in Christ. All is finished. Redemption is fully accomplished. Christian life grows out of that complete achievement by Christ. God tells us in His Word that salvation is entirely of Him and that it cannot be of ourselves, that we are saved by Him in order that we may live the life for which He is wrought the great work of salvation.”
