… behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.”6 When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified.7 But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.”
We are undone on our own before God.
I love that "but" (among others).
Because Jesus came on our behalf, our undone-ness is atoned for and we are by grace and through faith given a well done-ness.
Only from Jesus can we receive these Words of Life.
