Jesus Saves and Keeps Us

A man in Ireland was convicted of his sin and was on the verge of trusting Christ when the devil raised the oft-repeated objection: “If you believe, it won’t last. What about tomorrow?” The worker dealing with him pointed to a water mill nearby. “What turns that wheel today?”

“The stream.”

“What will turn it tomorrow?”

“The stream.”

“And the days after?”

“The stream.” The man was led to see that there was abundant grace to save, keep, and meet all needs.

“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8
