We rest our souls on a ‘finished work,’ if we rest them on the work of Jesus Christ the Lord.
We need not fear that either sin, or Satan, or law shall condemn us at the last day. We may lean back on the thought, that we have a Savior who has done all, paid all, accomplished all, performed all that is necessary for our salvation.”
