Salvation For God’s Children
this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 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. Heb. 7:24, 25.
provision has been made for our infirmities, every encouragement offered us
to come to Christ.
Christ offered up His broken body to purchase back God’s heritage, to
give man another trial. . . . By His spotless life, His obedience, His death
on the cross of Calvary, Christ interceded for the lost race. And now, not
as a mere petitioner does the Captain of our salvation intercede for us, but
as a Conqueror claiming His victory. His offering is complete, and as our
Intercessor He executes His self-appointed work, holding before God the censer
containing His own spotless merits and the prayers, confessions, and thanksgiving
of His people. Perfumed with the fragrance of His righteousness, these ascend
to God as a sweet savor. The offering is wholly acceptable, and pardon covers
Christ has pledged Himself to be our substitute and surety, and He neglects
no one. He who could not see human beings exposed to eternal ruin without
pouring out His soul unto death in their behalf, will look with pity and compassion
upon every soul who realizes that he cannot save himself.
He will look upon no trembling suppliant without raising him up. He who through
His own atonement provided for man an infinite fund of moral power, will not
fail to employ this power in our behalf. We may take our sins and sorrows
to His feet; for He loves us. His every look and word invites our confidence.
He will shape and mold our characters according to His own will.
In the whole satanic force there is not power to overcome one soul who in
simple trust casts himself on Christ. “He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.” Isa. 40:29.
