Of Christ the Mediator.
Chapter 8, Paragraph 6.
“…Being the Same yesterday, and today, and for ever.”
Jesus is steadfast in His role as mediator.
All the elect throughout time benefit from Jesus’ life and sacrificial death. The means of obtaining eternal life is the same for all His people; it is only through faith in Him that anyone receives it. From the Old Testament, to today, to the great-great-grandchildren of Millennials, the way of salvation has never changed: trust in the saving work of the Messiah.
Jesus does not waver in preserving His people. He intercedes on their behalf night and day, without fail. No one can snatch them out of His hand. The good work begun in them will be brought to completion. His Church will never fail.
Undefeated, Jesus remains a victorious king over all creation. He will never be overthrown from His reign. His power and might never waned, and there is no fear of Him ever weakening.
He who saved His people in the past, who preserved them, who spoke on their behalf to His Father, is the same One who saves, preserves, and intercedes now. He is constant; He is unchanging; He is the same. You can trust Him.
Questions to Consider
- Do you tend to take Jesus’ constancy for granted, or do you tend to doubt that He is steadfast?
