Irons…sharper than most

“The revolutionary truth of justification by faith alone apart from works has been attacked from the very beginning on the ground that it undercuts any motivation for obedience and gives men a license for sin. Paul faced such criticisms from the Judaizers in his own day. And Paul’s response is still valid: only when the glorious gospel of free grace has full sway in our hearts, overthrowing our self-righteousness and causing us to hunger and thirst after righteousness, will we ever begin to grow in Christ-like sanctification and evangelical obedience.” Lee Irons
