“That which God calls the sinner to “believe” is the Gospel. The first act of faith does not consist in believing that Christ died for me, but that He died for sinners. Christ is presented as an Object of faith. The Gospel announces that the Lord Jesus stands ready to receive every sinner who will throw down the arms of his rebellion, and trust in Him alone for salvation. As I do this, and am saved by Him, I obtain clear evidence of my election unto salvation: John 6:37; 2 Thessalonians 2:13. The business of the preacher is not to “offer” Christ to sinners, but to “preach” Him, expounding the doctrine of the Gospel. Our duty is to give the general call; the Holy Spirit will see to its effectual application unto God’s elect.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “The Satisfaction of Christ: Studies in the Atonement” by A. W. Pink (1886-1952)
