Jesus isn't your potential savior. He is your absolute savior. The gospel isn't an invitation, an ultimatum, or a demand, but a proclamation!
Put your trust in him, alone. Don't be duped by religion that mixes grace with your efforts. Jesus + your efforts = fallen from grace.
Jesus + nothing is absolute life & rest in him eternally.
He loves you way more than to leave you wondering if you're going to be saved or not.
Assurance of salvation is as absolute as His existence. So long as he lives, you are saved, being saved, and will be saved!
Love has the final word. Love wins.
You can chill, rest, relax, enjoy his life & love.
When He said, "It is finished" He didn't mean "potentially finished," or "I'm finished, so now you get to work."
No, it is absolutely finished and done. The work now is to believe it and enter into his rest.
Live your whole life depending on your ability to remember sins, confess them, live perfect according to the law, stressing over losing your salvation, trying to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, thinking it is your responsibility to save everyone because Jesus' blood will only touch those who you "minister to.."
Actually believe what He said.
Either He's the lamb of God that took away the sin of the WHOLE WORLD, or He's not. Are you going to believe your theology or what the bible says clear as day?
Or how about this one?
"God was in Christ reconciling the world (cosmos) to himself, NOT COUNTING THEIR SINS AGAINST THEM." ( 2 Cor )
You ever seen that scripture? Probably not if you've been lodged in evangelicalism.
Or what about this one - the mother of bombs to be dropped:
For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, **that one died for all, therefore all died**; (2 Corinthians
Whoa! So...all of creation was in Christ when He was at the cross? All creation was included in his work, died with Him, was buried and united with Him, and rose with him?? Really?!
and through Him to **reconcile all things to Himself**, having made peace **through the blood of His cross**; through Him, I say, **whether things on earth or things in heaven**. (Colossians
Just read your bible folks. This gospel (too-good-to-be-true-news) is a WHOOOOLE lot better than any of us could ever dream!
And we're barely scratching the surface!
Be loved, be free, live your holy, righteous life happy & joyful! Your Jesus was mighty to save & did a complete work!
You can bank on that!
