This week, we’ll cover the third and final part, which is at the same time the simplest and the hardest to actually get under your belt.
That third problem? Salvation by Jesus alone. Once again, back to Hebrews.
… he [Jesus] had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.
He by Himself — third rest. You don’t add anything. It’s not Jesus+.
Of course, you know that already, but do you act like it?
Many people struggle with the possibility of losing salvation by something they either do—or don’t—do.
But frequently they don’t follow through to the logical conclusion. If you believe you do something to either get or maintain salvation, that means Jesus’ work on the cross was both insufficient and incomplete for salvation.
That’s not a good place to be.
It’s never Jesus+, and if you think you can lose (or earn) your salvation by something you do, that position logically states Jesus never finished the job, and it’s up to humans to complete what He started.
Personally, I’ve never run across someone claiming you can lose your salvation who also claims Jesus failed to finish what the Father sent Him to do. However, if you think you can lose your salvation, that’s the place you end up.
Don’t fall for the lie, stand firm on the unchanging rock.
… because it’s 2:59 AM.
