“The glory of the gospel” by R.C. Sproul

“When the Scriptures tell us that God saves us, that salvation is of the Lord, we tend to forget that salvation is also from the Lord. What do we need to be saved from? We need to be saved from God— not from kidney stones, not from hurricanes, not from military defeats.

What every human being needs to be saved from is God. The last thing in the world the impenitent sinner ever wants to meet on the other side of the grave is God. But the glory of the gospel is that the One from whom we need to be saved is the very One who saves us.”

–R.C. Sproul, Saved from What? (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2002), 25.
