Abide in Christ: The Thirtieth Day

Abide in Christ
by Andrew Murray
As the Surety of the Covenant
"Jesus was made a surety of a better testament." Heb. 7:22
"It is the glory of the New Covenant that has in the person of the God-man its living surety, its everlasting security."

Our assuance in salvation comes through this security in who Christ is. We can know that this convenant God makes with His people will never be void.  God holds up His end of the bargain, AS WELL AS our end of the bargain.  We cannot provide a surety that we will be faithful to Him.  But, He has provided Christ Jesus to ever-intercede for us and be our promise.  The more we abide, the more we see who Christ is to us - a promise that our salvation is sure.  Our salvation is final. Final. When we are unfaithful, we should cry out to Jesus - abide more. Seek Him.

You did nothing to come to God - You can do nothing to leave God.

Lord, let me live in my assurance that You will hold up the end of both sides of this covenant.  You will save me - even to everlasting. Amen.
