“Proclaimed, believed, and applied” by R.W. Yarborough

“Only where Christ’s death for sin is taken with apostolic seriousness can the rains of divine restoration wash human hate away and moisten seeds of love. The prospects for real and lasting forgiveness in the many trouble spots of the postmodern world depend on the grace God grants as the gospel of His reconciling Son is proclaimed, believed and applied.”

–R. W. Yarborough, “Forgiveness and Reconciliation” in T. Desmond Alexander and Brian S. Rosner, New Dictionary of Biblical Theology, (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2001), 503.
