The other day I mentioned that I would be reading Piper’s book “50 Reasons why Jesus Came to Die” between Easter and Pentecost. You can get the scoop here.
To Provide the Basis for Our Justification
Piper addresses a key aspect of what Jesus did for us through his death, burial and resurrection. Many times we talk about how Christ took our sins and provided forgiveness, but seldom do we talk about being Justified (declared just) before God. Being Justified and declared Righteous (tomorrow’s chapter) are essential in our salvation.
