“Divine love triumphed over divine wrath by divine self sacrifice…The concept of substitution may be said, then to lie at the heart of both sin and salvation.  For the essence of  sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man.  Man asserts himself against God and puts himself where only God deserves to be; God sacrifices himself for man and puts himself where only man deserves to be be.  Man claims prerogatives which belongs to God alone; God accepts penalties which belongs to man alone. ” The Cross of Christ by John Stott
