Jesus + Nothing

“The death of the Lord Jesus is absolutely unique. It is subsitutionary. There is no death like Jesus’ death… His substitutionary death on the cross, in space and time in history, had infinite value because of who His is as God. Thus nothing need be added to the substitutionary value of His death, nor can anything be added.” 
Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality, p. 221 (Complete Works, Vol. 3)
In other words, Jesus + nothing = everything. He is my redemption, justification, adoption, sanctification, glorification, joy, hope, peace, strength, etc. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
