“The leaders of the church had placed John Bunyan, the author of Pilgrim’s Progress, in prison for preaching the gospel. They told him, “You can’t go on telling people that Christ’s righteousness has been credited to them in full. If they believe that, they’ll feel like they can do whatever they want!” Bunyan replied, “If people really see that Christ’s righteousness has been given to them entirely as a gift, they’ll do whatever He wants.”

J.D. Greear in his book Gospel, on John Bunyan and preaching the good news of Jesus.

May we all go on telling people that Christ’s righteousness, his perfect obedience, is theirs by faith. Because that is what the Bible declares. And may we, so awestruck by the gift of grace do whatever Jesus wants of us.
