Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Are you sure of the complete work of Jesus?
Partly saved is like being partly pregnant. There is no “almost or part-way” with the Lord Almighty. He saved you completely. There is nothing left undone.
John 19:28, 30 Jesus, seeing that everything had been completed so that the Scripture record might also be complete, then said, “I’m thirsty.” 30 After he took the wine, Jesus said, “It’s done . . . complete.” Bowing his head, he (voluntarily) offered up his spirit. (The Message MSG edited)
Hold on to this fact when the enemy tries to make you think there is something you have to do in addition to what God has already done. God’s mercy saved you. There was nothing you could have done.
Titus 3:5 He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we have done, but because of His own compassion and mercy, by the cleansing of the new birth (spiritual transformation, regeneration) and renewing by the Holy Spirit. (Amplified Bible AMP)
Because the work is finished, when you cry to the Father, in your time of need, He hears you. There is nothing in your past to keep Him from intervening. Salvation wiped your slate clean, and repentance keeps it clean. You have this blessed assurance, and it is crucial when you are warring for yourself and on the behalf of others. Stand on the word.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. (Amplified Bible AMP)
As you continue on your journey with the Lord, whether you are the planter, or the one who is watering; remember to speak this to encourage someone else.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for assuring me of my salvation. You have rooted in my spirit, there is nothing I could have done, or ever will do, You wouldn’t forgive. I thank You because I can walk on the path You set for me, with Your assurance. I know You have ordained for me to speak to people as I travel along. Not only do they need to hear the words that I speak, but they have to feel Your presence in the truth of them. I have to let a dying world know there is no gift given, nor will ever be given, greater than the love You make available to anyone who wants it. To do that, I must live the crucified life, demonstrating the truth of Your love. I must live the word and breathe it by faith. I have to adhere to it, rely on it, and completely trust in it. When I am faithful to do as You command, those who I come in contact with won’t have to be convinced. They will immediately sense Your love and desire it for themselves…
