John Stott quote on the Cross

Great quote on the cross from Tim Keller’s book The Reason for God (p. 195),

The essence of sin is we human beings substituting ourselves for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for us. We…put ourselves where only God deserves to be; God…puts himself where we deserve to be.

– John Stott, The Cross of Christ, p. 160
