40. God's wonderful salvation

God wants us to fly on eagle's wings. We saw that last week. He wants to work through us and bring His Kingdom to this fallen earth. He only wants us to be willing to be used. His Spirit will then flow through us into a broken world and bring healing where possible. He will even pray through us, when we do not know how to pray, He will literally do everything, we just need to be open that He can flow. We need to be spiritually minded and focus on the things that are important to God. He is a good, good Father, amazingly generous. He will provide in all our needs as we go out and make a difference for Him.

And all this is possible for us due to what Jesus did for us. The Good News is that our sins are forgiven and that He lives in all His power and might within us, ready to change the world:

"For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek." Romans 1:16

The Gospel of Christ is the power of God. It brings forth God's mighty power within us. Sharing and declaring the Gospel of Christ will provide us with power. It brings salvation to everyone that believes. The word salvation here means Soteria in Greek. This word Soteria means "welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation and safety". Thus the Gospel of Christ brings all these wonderful things to us. Why? Because we are part of His Kingdom and in His Kingdom is His life and peace. His death and resurrection opened up the way for us to enter into God's presence with confidence and peace. We can come to Him as part of His family. We can come to Him today:

"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." 2 Corinthians 6:2

The day of salvation is now. The day to prosper, to be delivered and to be safe is now. It is not at a future date when we have left this earth. No, the Word of God tells us that it is now. But notice, to 'prosper' doesn't necessarily refer to earthly riches. No, to prosper means to be within God's Will, to do what He called you to do, to walk within His perfect will for your life.

The Gospel of Christ is indeed Good News. He came to set us free from this world and to provide salvation for us now, today. And when you are free from this world, true living starts. It is immensely exciting. Start living from a heavenly perspective. Spend time with God and ask Him to show you what it is that He expects of you. Ask Him to show you your life from His perspective. It will surely liberate and free you from the pressures of this life. He will give you advice and show you the way to walk. You needn't stress and worry if you have Him by your side. He will tell you exactly what to do. All you need to do is to spend time with Him and follow His advice. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so. Time spent with Him is time well spent. It will save you much heartache in the long run.

Thank you Father for the good news of Your Son! Thank you that He did everything to free us from this world. Thank you that He came to give us salvation. Help us to rather focus on You and Your Kingdom than on this life. We love and praise You. Amen
