Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:13
"Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us .... For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true: but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us" (Hebrews 9:12, 24). "And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead: that in all things He might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell: and having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things to Himself' (Colossians 1:18-20). Past tense! The job is done.
"Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption .... Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you" (Ephesians 4:30, 32). "And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses" (Colossians 2:13).
An old familiar hymn declares, "Jesus paid it all: all to Him I owe." What a precious truth! There is nothing one can do to attain salvation: it cannot be earned by works of righteousness. "For He [God] hath made him [Christ] to be sin for us, [He] who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (II Corinthians 5=21). Sadly, all too many (both believers and nonbelievers) are laboring under the illusion that salvation requires keeping the law of commandments; but "ye are not under the law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14).
How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
