Next Steps: 1689, Chapter 8, Part 3

The Lord Jesus has fully satisfied the justice of God, obtained reconciliation, and purchased an everlasting inheritance in the kingdom of heaven for all those given to Him by the Father. He has accomplished these things by His perfect obedience and sacrifice of Himself, which He once for all offered up to God through the eternal Spirit.

LBC 1689, 8:5

Paragraph 5 contained some wonderful modifiers: Fully satisfied, everlasting inheritance, once for all sacrifice. 

  • Why do these modifiers give us hope? 
  • What would happen if those modifiers said something less?
