Lord’s Day Quote: Meredith Kline

Contrary to the sweeping denial of the operation of the works principle anywhere in the divine government, the biblical evidence compels us to recognize that God has in fact employed that principle.  Indeed, the principle of works forms the foundation of the gospel of grace.  If mertitorious works could not be predicated of Jesus Christ as second Adam, then obivoulsy there would be no meritorious achievement to be imputed to his people as the ground of their justification-approbation.  The gospel invitation would turn out to be a mirage.  We who have believed on Christ would still be under condemnation.

 Meredith Kline, Kingdom Prologue
