For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

Christ's Righteousness Is Of Infinite Worthiness!

Jonathan Edwards wrote:
Christ by His obedience, by that obedience which He undertook for our sakes, has honored God abundantly more than the sins of any of us have dishonored Him, how many soever, how great soever . . . . God hates our sins, but not more than He delights in Christ's obedience which He performed on our account. This is a sweet savor to Him, a savor of rest. God is abundantly compensated, He desires no more; Christ's righteousness is of infinite worthiness and merit.

Jonathan Edwards, The Works Of Jonathan Edwards, Vol. 2, p. 930 (Sermon on Isaiah 32:2)
