Lessons/Challenges:

A. The complete forgiveness of sins here and now (Romans 5:8–9; 10:9–10; Hebrews 10:12).
B. The absolute assurance of salvation (John 5:24; 1 John 5:13), and hence peace with God and freedom from the fear of death or what happens after death (John 14:1–3; Philippians 1:21, 23; Hebrews 2:14–15).
C. Union with Christ, which is God’s comprehensive and ultimate purpose for our lives, both now and for all eternity (John 14:23; 15:5; Colossians 3:4).

By grace, through faith, in Christ alone.
