Not one of us would
ever be saved!
(J. R. Miller, "The Hidden Life" 1895)
lives to intercede for them." Hebrews 7:25
Some speak as if all Christ's work in saving us, had
been done on the cross nineteen hundred years ago,
in His giving up of Himself to die for us. But His
actual work in saving us — is continued with us —
in teaching us life's lessons,
giving us grace to overcome in temptation,
lifting us up when we have fallen,
going after us and bringing us back when
we have wandered away, and
keeping us from the world's deadly evils.
Were it not for this patient, never-failing, watchful
love of Christ — not one of us would ever be saved!
"I give them eternal life, and they will never perish
— ever! No one will snatch them out of My hand!"
