The whole scheme of works salvation is totally dependant upon man and looks inward for all hope, happiness, help, and holiness. Making man the principle object of worship, preeminence and glory. But, the whole scheme of God's salvation is dependant upon Jesus Christ, the appointed Mediator and Substitute for sinners. This scheme of salvation looks Godward for all hope, happiness, help, and holiness. Making Jesus Christ the principle object of all worship, preeminence and glory. " God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. " The grand design of God's salvation is the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 17:4-5).
