Nothing to do

November 1996 | by John Warburton

The longer I live, the more I feel that if there were one thing left undone, if the devil were not conquered, sin not expiated, justice not satisfied, the law not honoured and magnified, death not overcome, and every burden carried, I should not have a ray of hope. I see and feel that if one hair-breadth is left for me to do to merit heaven or bring as a plea before God, I am undone for ever and ever. But on Mount Calvary the Lord Jesus undertook the cause of his people; and there is not a jot or a tittle that he left undone, but ‘By one offering he perfected for ever them that are sanctified,’ and ‘There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.’ Here is complete perfection: saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation.
