The Evangelical Principle

The eminently quotable PT Forsyth, writes,

We cannot solve life by moral thought or effort but by trust, which unites us with the invincible, eternal, moral act of God in Christ. Christianity is not the sacrifice we make, but the sacrifice we trust; not the victory we win, but the victory we inherit. That is the evangelical principle. [Justification of God, 220.

So good.
