Back on the topic of penal-substitionary atonement . . .

Ambrose talking to Augustine:

It is profitable to me to know that for my sake Christ bore my infirmities, submitted to the affections of my body, that for me and for all he was made sin and a curse, that for me and in me was he humbled and made subject, that for me he is the lamb, the vine, the rock, the servant, the Son of a handmaid, knowing not the day of judgment, for my sake ignorant of the day and the hour.

I learned this from Mark Dever.

 

Grace & Glory Sunday – “Atonement Through Christ!”

Greetings,
 
We would like to take a moment and invite you to our upcoming Grace & Glory Sunday Service on June 5th.  The overriding topic is the grace and glory of Jesus Christ.  He is truly incomparable to anyone else.  His grace is amazing.  His glory is unrivaled.  The particular theme for the worship service will be “Atonement Through Christ!!”  This could spark some questions in people’s minds.  What does atonement mean?  Who first penned that English word?  How is atonement illustrated?  Why are some high-profile speakers in America antagonistic to this theme?  And what does the atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ mean for you personally?
 
All the music, prayers, Bible teaching, and preaching will revolve around this central topic of the gospel.  It is our desire that you find Christ, learn Christ, love Christ, and live Christ.  Please come.  We would be honored by your visit.  The main service begins at 10:45 am.
 
looking forward to meeting you,
