40. Our Promises Are No Guarantee, But God's Promise Is!

Salvation is not based upon our works, abilities or promises to God. What we have in Christ is a surety and a hope and a steadfastness that is not based upon ourselves, but rather is based upon God’s promises and His works. If our salvation has anything to do with our works or promises, then it cannot be of grace and it cannot be of God’s promise. God, who cannot lie, made an oath to Himself, and this oath is our guarantee. Our promises to God are no guarantee! God’s oath, however, is where our hope lies. This is a hope we can cling to with certainty. "This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast."
