Jehovah Our Righteousness

“There is no other name, therefore, given under heaven among men whereby we can be saved but the name of Jesus; and this is His name whereby He   shall be called, Jehovah our Righteousness.  Unless His righteousness, in virtue of vital union with Him, is imputed to us, we are undone; we are heirs of hell, and destitute of a title to heaven.  We are destitute also of holiness because, while we are without that righteousness, the curse of the law chains us down under the dominion of sin; and being under the arrest of vindictive justice, no sanctifying influence has access into our souls”.

-John Colquhoun, From his “Sermons On Important Doctrines”, P.110
