From My Commonplace: On Justification

"So, in Christ a 'wonderful exchange' took place.  He became what he was not, a condemned criminal, in order that we might become what we are not, men declared righteous and justified in the sight of God…In justification we are not only told that Christ has paid the debt of our sins.  We receive Christ's righteousness…we are in Christ."
