So, wrapping up. Once you repent of your sins and believe
in Christ’s work you can rest in Him knowing that nothing can separate you now
from His love! And rejoice in that knowledge! The verdict of “Forgiven” will
never change because it’s grounded solely and forever in Jesus: His death on
the cross in your place and His intercession for you now at the throne of God.
For Christians the cross of Jesus is an immovable testimony
of God’s love for us and His determination to bring us safely “home”.
But we have a job. Luke
24:45-48 45 Then he opened their
minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the

the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning

that purpose is to be accomplished through us! Whether we preach or teach or

those who know the forgiveness that comes from Him.
There are lots of good works that can be done, but those things can
be done by anyone. There is only one way to be saved. There is only one Gospel.
And only Christians can tell it. That’s the most important thing we can be
And one day we will be a part of the millions worshipping our king:
Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked,
and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every
nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the
Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their
hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:
belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and
to the Lamb.”
