The Lord Jesus is a complete Savior

Posted: April 7, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

The glorious Gospel contains provision for our spiritual, as well as our eternal life. The Lord Jesus is a complete Savior. That mighty living Head has no dead members. His people are not only justified and pardoned, but made alive together with Him, and made partakers of His resurrection. To Him the Spirit joins the sinner, and raises them by that union from death to life. In Him the sinner lives after they have believed. The spring of all their vitality is the union between Christ and their soul, which the Spirit begins and keeps up. Christ is the appointed fountain of all spiritual life, and the Holy Spirit the appointed agent who conveys that life to our souls.
