Full Salvation Has Been Given

It is a full and complete salvation that God has provided; it awaits us as we come into the world; and we do not relieve God of any burden by rejecting it, nor do we add to His labor by accepting it. The Glad Tidings, pg 66.

Yes Christ has paid the price for our total salvation. The scriptures state that Jesus tasted death for everyone. Hebrews 2:9. He has given all of humanity this great gift of salvation…all of us. In another place the apostle writes that Jesus is the savior of all of people. 1 Timothy 4:10.

As Sister White wrote in The Desire of Ages on page 25:

Christ was treated as we deserve, that we might be treated as He deserves. He was condemned for our sins, in which He had no share, that we might be justified by His righteousness, in which we had no share. He suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which was His.

Yes salvation full and complete has been given to all people as a gift. Don’t throw away this gift, for Christ has paid too much for it, yes it is yours.

Christ Was Made

Christ was “made” what, before, He was not in order that the man might be made now and forever what he is not.

Christ was Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15:45. He became flesh in order that humanity, who is flesh, might become spirit. John 3:6; Romans 8:8-10.

Christ, who was altogether of the divine nature, was made partaker of human nature, in order that we who are altogether of the human nature “might be partakers of the divine nature.” 2 Peter 1:4.

Christ, who knew no sin, was made to be sin (2 Corinthians 5:21), even the sinfulness of humanity, in order that we, who knew no righteousness, might be made righteous.

Christ was made what he was not before so that we might be made that which we were not before.  Praise God for this transaction!
