“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right Hand of God, from henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool—for by one offering He has perfected forever them that are sanctified.”
Hebrews 10:12-14

His is a complete salvation, not a piecemeal process.

We know about installment plans and networking.  We also know the day-and-age of the family doctor as a general practitioner is quickly fading away as more and more “specialists” come on the scene.

While it’s good that there are those who specialize in brain surgeries or heart surgeries. . . investment banking and financial portfolios. . .fine-tuned engines and computer programming, etc., it’s still good to know someone who’s a “jack-of-all-trades.”

We’ve all known folks like that.  Those individuals who could build a house, overhaul an engine or produce a crop from scratch on a farm.

They’re quite versatile and proficient at what they do.

But, the fact remains they can’t do everything.

Yet, such was/is not the case with Jesus when it comes to our salvation.

Truly, He’s a “one-stop Savior.”  Hallelujah!!

It is through His Blood that we are “justified freely by His Grace” (Rom. 3:24).  Likewise, He is the One through the Holy Spirit that sanctifies us, transforming us more and more each day into His Likeness (Jn. 17:19).  And, it’s because of His wondrous Resurrection that we shall one day experience God’s Glorification in which “our vile body is fashioned into one like Christ’s glorious Body” (Phil. 3:21a).

Won’t that be a wonderful Day?

Most assuredly it will.  Glory!!

Yes, when Christ cried “It is finished” from the Cross (Jn. 19:30), it truly was/is finished.  That’s why He “sat down on the right Hand of God” when He arrived in Heaven, confident that one day “all of His enemies—including Death—will be made His footstool” (I Cor. 15:25-26).

Oh Glorious Day!!

Until then we must continue “walking by faith,” not sight—always “looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith” (Heb. 12:2a).  We must not “grow weary in well-doing or faint in our minds, always remembering that one day we shall reap” (Gal. 6:9).  Even in our “fiery furnace” experiences, we shall not fear, fret or fume. . .for we know “He Who began a good work in us will continue it” (Phil. 1:6). . .and will make our faith “more precious than gold that perishes though it be tried by fire” (I Pet. 1:6-7).

And, to think:

It was all because of Christ’s “one Offering” on the Cross that day at Calvary.  Aren’t you glad?  If so, tell someone else about Him today.
