We Cannot Believe This Too Deeply
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6
Indeed, our salvation is a work we didn’t begin, and you alone can finish. We never could have performed our way out of our sin, or earned our way into your love. From beginning to end, salvation is all of grace—the whole redemptive enchilada. We contributed nothing but our sin, and you gave everything in your Son.
Oh, the peace, joy, and freedom that comes with really believing the gospel is as complete and good as you declare it to be. Oh, the wonder of realizing that one day, we will be as lovely as and as loving as Jesus, for you WILL complete this good gospel-work in our lives. For so great a salvation we worship you; for so awesome a Savior, we adore you; for another day to live to your glory, we thank you. So very Amen we pray, in Jesus’ glorious and grace-full name.
