Right Standing With God (with Dutch Translation)
by T. Austin-Sparks
"What is the one all-governing thing through the whole Bible? Now I’ll tell you: Right standing with God! How can man have right standing with God? We have a word for it, haven’t we? It’s the great word, it’s the word “righteousness”. Of course that’s a theological word. That’s a word of Christian doctrine. Oh, but it is infinitely more than that! From Genesis to Revelation the one question is: right standing with God. There is God, He is over all. God... perfect in holiness - perfect in every way! How can man stand in God’s presence on right ground and say, “I have a right to be here before God”? That is the meaning of righteousness, it is right standing with God. Is not that your concern?"
