CHRIST – A SUFFICIENT SAVIOR
“Christ…is the faithful interpreter…in regard to our salvation” John Calvin (ref#113, p636).
FATHER, do I depend on the merits of CHRIST? Am I confident CHRIST is a sufficient Savior (ref#63, p803)?
“What the ark was to Noah and the blood of the lamb was to the children of Israel, is what the atoning blood of Christ is to the believing soul. It forms his eternal security….Let the professor of Christ not leave the sealing of his pardon and acceptance to that fearful hour; let him earnestly seek it now, so that when he comes to die he will have nothing to do but die” Octavius Winslow (ref#135, Sept 24th).
Do I still have my original confidence in CHRIST (Heb 3:14)?
“Though God’s election is a truth,
Small comfort there I see,
Till I am told by God’s own mouth,
That he has chosen me.
“[Sinners, I read, are justified,
By faith in Jesus’ blood;
But when it me that blood’s applied,
‘Tis then it does me good.]” J. Hart (ref#224, #31).
