Passage: Daniel 9:24 & John 17:1-4

"What did Christ accomplish?"

1. He brought in an everlasting righteousnessfor us (DANIEL 9:24)

By his life of submission and obedience to the law of God as a man, the Son of God established righteousness in the earth. This righteousness was performed by Christ as our Representative before God. It is this righteousness, performed by Christ, which God imputes to believers. He declares us righteous by virtue of Christ’s righteousness for us. We have no righteousness of our own, but we are made righteous before God in Christ.

2. Christ satisfied the justice of God as our Substitute

God demands the death of every transgressor. Every sinner must suffer the infinite wrath of God for sin. ‘The wages of sin is death’ (ROMANS 6:23). And God always pays men their wages. ‘The soul that sinneth, it shall die’ (EZEKIEL 18:20). When Christ hung upon the cross he died under the penalty of the law. He died asthe object of God’s wrath, because he was made to be sin for us. And by his death, he satisfied the claims of justice against us, so that those for whom he died are no longer under the sentence of death.

3. Jesus Christ our Savior has put away the sins of his people by the sacrifice of himself

He took our sins upon himself and made them his own. Dying under the penalty of sin for us, Christ put away our sins. He drowned them in his precious blood. In so far as the law and justice of God are concerned, our sins, the sins of all who believe, the sins of God’s elect do not exist! In Christ we are freed from all sin. ‘Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin’ (ROMANS 4:8).

4. By his life and by his death, the Lord Jesus Christ secured and guaranteed the eternal salvation of his people

God will save every sinner for whom Christ died upon the cross. Not one of God’s elect will perish. By his life of righteousness as our Representative Christ merited the blessings of God for us, and by his sin-atoning death asour Substitute he silenced the claims of justice against us. All for whom Christ died shall live forever in glory.
