Keller on the Gospel

Tim Keller, of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, offers this wonderful perspective on what the gospel communicates:

[The gospel] tells us that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted than you ever dared hope–at the same time.  In fact, if the gospel is true, the more you see your sin, the more certain you are that you were saved by sheer grace and more precious and electrifying that grace is to you.
