What God does for the individual believer, then, is not a new and different work, a further ‘making righteous’, but an application of the one complete work, a ‘counting’ of this believer into the righteous Kingdom already established and in place. In saying that we are counted righteous, the Reformers did not challenge the link between salvation and wholeness; they challenged the restriction of salvation to the sphere of the individual soul. We cannot comprehend justification in terms of what God does for each soul; for what transpires within that private sphere is but the expression of a public work upon the widest cosmic front already achieved: the redemption of the human race.”
