Edward's Quote

Man, I have been floored by this quote I saw this morning on Tim Challie's website:

The Bible tells us of “…that great Savior, who, after such preparation, actually accomplished the purchase of redemption, and who, after he had spent three or four and thirty years in poverty, labor, and contempt, in purchasing redemption, at last finished the purchase by closing his life under such extreme sufferings as you have heard, and so by his death, and continuing for a time under the power of death, completed the whole.” (Jonathan Edwards, History of the Work of Redemption)

All of the life of Christ and the death of Christ and the resurrection of Christ and the exaltation of Christ (ie. the whole person and work of Jesus) has "completed" (finished, accomplished) all of my salvation.
