Book Excerpt from ‘Christless Christianity’

From Michael Horton’s book, Christless Christianity:

“Like Peter, our Christian life is a roller coaster of faithfulness and unfaithfulness. Since we always drift back to self-confident triumphalism (remember Peter’s protest, ‘I will never deny you!’ just before he did), we need to hear God’s verdict on our righteousness through the law and his assurance of pardon in the gospel. Jesus’s example is not good news but a terrifying burden unless he is first of all the one who saves me from my inability to follow it.”
