Because

I finished Carson's book yesterday and found lots of really interesting things from it. One section said this:

"Satan accuses Christians day and night. It is not just that he will work on our conscience to make us feel as dirty, guilty, defeated, destroyed, weak, and ugly as he possibly can; it is something worse: his entire ploy in the past is to accuse us before God day and night, bringing charges against us that we know we can never answer before the majesty of God's holiness. What can we say in response? Will our defense be, 'Oh, I'm not that bad!'? You will never beat Satan that way. Never. What you must say is, '...I'm even worse than you think, but God loves me anyway. He has accepted me because of the blood of the Lamb.'" -Scandalous: The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus by D A Carson, pages 98-99.

Praise God for His grace!

Hebrews 10:12-14
"But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified."

Revelation 7:9-12
"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, 'Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!' All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:

   'Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
   Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
   Be to our God forever and ever.
   Amen.'"
