Oh, The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

"But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." Hebrews 7:24-25

I am so grateful that my salvation is not dependent upon my emotions and feelings, but it is solely dependent upon His grace. It is not the amount of my faith, but the object of my faith who is the sure foundation upon which I rest. Jesus is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him. He will not fail. Though my faith may be weak and frail at times and my vision clouded by faulty emotions, I know, I know my Redeemer lives. He is a covenant keeping God. Our covenant God will ever hold me and keep me and grant me the faith to persevere and run the race, to the uttermost. Our great High Priest is ever interceding for those who are trusting in Him. Jesus, I am resting, resting in the joy of what Thou art. Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to His cross I cling. Oh, the deep, deep love of Jesus.
