Christ – Our Total Savior

The Christian community is divided into two categories of people – those who seek to establish their own righteousness and those who are resting in Christ’s righteousness (2). First, there are those who believe that salvation is only initially based on Christ’s righteousness, and who then strive in the energy of the flesh to maintain a righteous standing. These will not and cannot enter into God’s desired rest for them (3).

Then there are those who rest in a total salvation, seeing Christ as their salvation from start to finish, not just initially. These believers learn to place no confidence in the flesh (4). They enter His prescribed rest (5) and into a life of godly production (6); (7). Christ is our salvation all the way! In I Corinthians 1:30, God has made Him our righteousness by way of justification when we first believed. He sanctifies us as we progress in personal holiness by the Word (8). Then He is our salvation through the redemption of our physical bodies in glorification (9).

Seeing Christ as our salvation all the way from start to finish, from time to eternity – seeing Him as our total Savior, is the key to entering into God’s rest, into an enjoyment of our position, and an anticipation of our certain inheritance (10); (11).


Hrist – naš totalni spasitelj

Hrišćanska zajednica podijeljena je u dvije kategorije ljudi – one koji pokušavaju uspostaviti svoju pravičnost i one koji se odmaraju u Hristovoj pravičnosti (2). Prvo, postoje oni koji veruju da spas je samo na početku zasnovan na Hristovoj pravednosti, a koji potom teže energiji tijela da održi pravedni položaj. Oni neće i ne mogu ući u Božji željeni odmor za njih (3).

Zatim postoje i oni koji počivaju u potpunom spasenju, videći Hrista kao spas od početka do kraja, ne samo na početku. Ovi vernici uče da ne veruju u telo (4). Oni ulaze u svoj propisani odmor (5) iu život božanske proizvodnje (6); (7). Hrist je naš spas sve do kraja! U I Korinćanima 1:30, Bog je učinio Njegovom pravednošću opravdanjem kada smo prvi put verovali. On nas posvećuje dok napredujemo u ličnoj svetosti Reči (8). Onda je On spasenje kroz iskupljenje naših fizičkih tela u glorifikaciji (9).

Vidjeti Hrista kao naše spasenje sve od početka do kraja, od vremena do večnosti – vidjeti ga kao našeg potpunog Spasitelja, ključ je za ulazak u Božiji odmor, uživanje u našem položaju i očekivanje našeg određenog nasleđa (10 ); (11).
