Graham Cole on imputation/obedience
In God the Peacemaker, Graham Cole says about Christ's obedience and faithfulness:
"Christ's faithfulness issued in obedience. His obedience constituted his righteousness. His righteousness is put to our account, if we are believers, as the traditional doctrine of imputation maintains. It is put to our account not because of a mere reckoning so by God, but because we are really united to Christ by the Spirit" (p. 118).
