DayBreaks for 04/28/13 – Where Our Salvation Rests
NOTE: I am on a missions trip/internship to Africa and will be gone until 5/25. Please pray for God’s work to go forth mightily, for protection for myself and those with whom I will be working, and for my wife in my absence! Thank you…I cherish your prayers! You will be receiving DayBreaks as usual (from the archive) until I’ve returned.
John 6:37-39 – “37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.”
This is one of the most comforting of all passages in Scripture. What a picture of our God and our Savior! Consider these highlights from this passage:
FIRST: God is the One who gives the saved to Christ. God isn’t prone to forget, God never makes a mistake, God will never accidentally lose sight of one person who is to come to Jesus.
SECOND: Jesus will never drive away those who come to him. We never need to wonder or worry if we will find a welcome when it comes to Jesus. He will never be too tired to spend time with us, never to busy to become involved with our issues or to celebrate our joys with us.
THIRD: The will of the One who sent Jesus is that not a single one of those God has given to Jesus will be lost. What a comfort! What a promise! It doesn’t matter that we are prone to wander, Jesus won’t lose a single one of us.
As Chuck Swindoll put it: “Our salvation rests on God’s strength, not our. Our safety is in Jesus Christ’s power, not ours. Our protection depends on the Father’s firm grip, not ours. No one, including the devil, can sever that vital union that comes to us with the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Why? Because it was Christ’s death and resurrection that perfected us…because of His finished work, not ours.”
