Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past (Romans 3:24,25).
Jesus has done all that is necessary to bring us into right standing with a holy God, if we but believe and accept His free gift of salvation. Jesus saves! It is enough! In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1:7). The second verse of the great hymn, My Faith Has Found A Resting Place, further explains this truth:
Enough for me that Jesus saves, This ends my fear and doubt; A sinful soul I come to Him, Hell never cast me out.
Jesus who loved us, said, him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out (John 6:37). There is no fear here, for There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear (I John 4:18). Nor should there be any doubt in Him or His intentions, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him (Ephesians 3:12). Furthermore, Being confident . . . that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:6).
The chorus of the hymn likewise presents a thrilling truth. It paints a picture of a courtroom and the interrogation of a defendant. When asked why one should be forgiven, granted eternal life and entrance into heaven, the argument or legal defense can be given that Jesus has died, and that is enough. No other legal defense or answer need be given. The plea has already been entered, and the courts findings are guaranteed, justified freely by His grace.
I need no other argument, I need no other plea, It is enough that Jesus died, And that He died for me. JDM
