alien righteousness

I enter by His obedience

“So for all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the entrance is no longer blocked.  In Christ we can face God; we can have boldness to enter into the holiest of all by the blood of Jesus.  Not by myself.  No, for I am a vile sinner.  But I am in him.  I enter by this obedience.  He kept the law perfectly, not only for himself, but for all who believe in him.

The terrors of law and of God

With me can have nothing to do;

My Savior’s obedience and blood

Hide all my transgressions from view.
