“Do I need salvation? I find it in his name Jesus, which means “Savior.”

Do I need the gifts of the Holy Spirit? I find them in his title “Christ,” which means “Anointed One.”

Do I need purity? I find it in his holy conception.

Do I need redemption? I find it in his suffering.

Do I need to be acquitted of my guilt? I find it in his condemnation on the cross.

Do I need forgiveness? I find it in his curse on the cross.

Do I need satisfaction for my sins? I find it in his sacrifice.

Do I need purification? I find it in his blood.

Do I need reconciliation with God? I find it in his suffering hell and the wrath of God in my place.

Do I need sanctification in dying to my sins? I find it in his burial.

Do I need sanctification in rising to newness of life? I find it in his resurrection.

Do I need assurance of my eternal inheritance? I find it in his ascension into heaven.

Do I need protection? I find it in his being at the right hand of God in the kingdom of glory.”

“The whole sum of our salvation, and every single part of it, are comprehended in Christ.”

-John Calvin (As cited and adapted by Pastor Danny Hyde from Institutes of the Christian Religion, 2.16.19).
