Saved to the Uttermost

We can add to the previous post the amazing promises of God that follow in the next few chapters.  These words about Jesus’ accomplishments are our anchor in God:

He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him.  …  He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.  …  He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.  …  Christ entered heaven itself now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.  …  He appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.  …  Christ offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins.  …  By a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

Those in Christ are saved to the uttermost; they already have eternal redemption; their sin has been put away; they have been perfected.  Amen!

Wonderful grace of Jesus, greater than all my sin;
How shall my tongue describe it, where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden, setting my spirit free,
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
Wonderful grace of Jesus, reaching to all the lost,
By it I have been pardoned, saved to the uttermost;
Chains have been torn asunder, giving me liberty;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
Wonderful grace of Jesus, reaching the most defiled,
By its transforming power, making him God’s dear child,
Purchasing peace and heaven, for all eternity;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
