Substitution



“For the essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man. Man asserts himself against God and puts himself where only God deserves to be; God sacrifices himself for man and puts himself where only man deserves to be.” 

- John Stott, The Cross of Christ, IVP Books, 20 Anniversary Edition, 2012.
