I recently read a statement in a magazine about investment strategy of a successful financial company. They talked all about their past successful performance to encourage investors to trust them with their money. But then they put this disclaimer, "our past performance is no certain guarantee of our future results." How willing are people to risk all their capital on the flimsy and feeble promises of men. But they think very little of what is at stake in the welfare of their eternal state before almighty God.

However, the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is not a risk (Rom. 4:20-21). We can safely invest all our salvation to our Saviour, Who cannot fail (Isa. 42:4) and is always successful (Rev. 1:18; 1 Cor. 15:57). The past performance of the Lord Jesus Christ in all His mediatoral office; as Prophet to reveal (Deut. 18:18), Priest to redeem (Heb. 2:17, 9:11-12) and King to reign (Matt. 28:18) is the certain and sure guarantee of the future results to all the heirs of grace (Rom. 8:32; Heb 9:15). The covenant of grace, in Christ is ordered in all things and is sure (2 Sam. 23:5; Rom. 4:16; 2 Cor. 1:20; Heb. 13:20). We can never go wrong and always invest wisely, trusting the Lord Jesus Christ with all our salvation (1 John 5:11-12; Acts 4:12).
