Episode 8.8: The Mediator’s Redemption Applied

key-in-door

What is the assumption in this paragraph? What does the Confession mean by “applies” and “communicates” redemption? What does the Confession mean by “certainly” and “effectually”? How does the Mediator intercede for us? How does he reveal and persuade us of the gospel? How does he govern our hearts? How do these truths help us combat self-righteousness? What assurance can be given in these words? Join Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle as they discuss WCF 8.8:

To all those for whom Christ has purchased redemption, He does certainly and effectually apply and communicate the same; making intercession for them, and revealing unto them, in and by the word, the mysteries of salvation; effectually persuading them by His Spirit to believe and obey, and governing their hearts by His word and Spirit; overcoming all their enemies by His almighty power and wisdom, in such manner, and ways, as are most consonant to His wonderful and unsearchable dispensation.
