A solid sentence!

Do you want one sentence to chew on for a good, long time? Here is one by Dane Ortlund on Justification. I came across it on his blog, Strawberry-Rhubarb Theology.

This side of several months pondering Bavinck's writings on justification, here's my best attempt at a single (run-on) sentence articulating his view--

Justification, the outstanding blessing of salvation, is the Triune God’s counterintuitive gift of forensic acquittal and right status, an end-time decision announced now in the middle of history, consisting of Christ’s own righteous obedience freely imputed to sinners united to Christ through self-divesting and Christ-riveted faith.
