Pastor Grasso explains that Christ’s death was also substitutionary. Christ died in our place. If it was substitutionary then it must also be limited in scope, since not everyone will be saved from their sins. All of this implies that the atonement was efficacious as well. Christ accomplished all He set out to do.
Pastor Grasso explains the legal nature of the atonement. Christ stood in our legal place to take the penalty for our sins that we might be declared righteous by God. This is part of the defense of the Reformed view of penal substitutionary atonement.
