What is it that makes us CONVINCED that we have to DO SOMETHING to earn our salvation? If we COULD do enough to EARN our salvation, then there was no reason for Jesus to come and die. Now was there?
Well, I have linked the text of my meditation for this morning here and pray that you will pray about it and read it too. We NEED to know that, while we are proved to be God’s by our obedience to and trust in Him, we CANNOT, under ANY circumstances, EARN our salvation. It’s like someone paying for your groceries to bless you and you keep trying to pay the cashier AGAIN while she keeps trying to explain that you don’t owe her. It’s ALREADY been paid for.
I pray that you’ll read the scripture that I have created the link to below and pray to understand the truth of what God is telling us here. How much more joyful could we BE in our salvation once we realize that it’s paid for and all WE have to do is to accept and treasure it???
Jesus WANTS us to be joyful. He told us this in this verse.
John 10:10Amplified Bible (AMP)
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
I like to tell people that I believe that God wants us to be ecstatic, dancing in the rain, happy with our lives. I TRULY believe that. I mean. He came and died to see that happen! Let’s accept His free gift and show Him how much we love Him and that we REALLY are His by obeying Him! After all, obedience is better than sacrifice!!!
I pray that this Word from God touches your heart today and I’m going to leave you with a song that I think goes SO WELL with this lesson.
