Walking Over the Pit of Hell
Matthew 7:13; 10:28; Luke 12:5; 21:34–36
Unconverted men walk over the pit of hell on a rotten covering, and there are innumerable places in this covering so weak that they will not bear their weight, and these places are not seen.

Christ Is the Righteousness of Believers
Romans 3:22, 24; 8:4; 10:4; Philippians 3:9; 1 Peter 3:18
Christ is now the righteousness of all those who truly do believe in him. He for them paid their ransom by his death. He for them fulfilled the law in his life. So that now in him, and by him, every true Christian man may be called a fulfiller of the law, since that which their infirmity lacks, Christ’s justice has supplied.
