Jesus Had a Job and He Did It
The whole Bible tells the story of God’s glory and saving grace.
Jn 17:4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.
When Jesus died upon the cross the job was done.
Jn 19:30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Jesus than did exactly what all believers will do…He went to Heaven.
Heb 10:12 But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God…
Completed by Jesus, a gift of God, God’s grace is given for our faith.
Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Eph 2:9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
The word saved means kept from harm and preserved for safe keeping.
