“But here is the joy, here is the peace of Christians, that our salvation is a finished one! We have not a farthing to pay to complete the ransom of our souls. We have not a stitch to set to finish the robe of our salvation. We have not an act to perform, a prayer to offer, a tear to weep, a thought to think in order to finish the work of our redemption! I know that all these things shall be worked in us and, that by the Spirit of God we shall be made to do them — but all that shall not be with any view to the completion of our salvation — that was finished in the Person of the bleeding Lamb of Calvary!”
IT IS DONE – “Our salvation is a finished one” not a thing to add or to be done! We could not, we cannot for Christ our Lord has gone before us and done it all. I love reading Spurgeon’s words over again. A great and wonderful truth what a relief that it is not up to us! Our souls are His bought with the ultimate sacrifice. A perfect man, God in the flesh. So that no-one or no thing can come to steal it a way. We are His. He has done it and it is complete! Praise God for the ultimate triumph the salvation of our souls.
As I heard John Piper say when the accusations of the enemy come just say to him each morning ” We don’t have to be good enough Mr Satan; Christ is our substitute, He did it for us!” Amen.
Calvary is the answer, the enemy is defeated!!
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32
