We can be so thankful that Jesus didn’t say, “I have come that you might get by.” His proclamation to those who believe is “I have come to give you life abundant.”
Jesus didn’t come to give a “so-so salvation” but,
“so great a salvation.”
The Apostle Paul knew what Jesus was talking about.
He understood it! He received it! He lived it!
Here are a few of the things he said about his life in Jesus:
I am more than a conqueror through Him;
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me;
He causes me to triumph and reign in life.
Paul reminds us that whatever we had going against us in our life without Christ, we have so much more going for us now that we are in Christ. The Gospel truly is a “so much more” salvation.
