In that day the people will proclaim, “This is our God! We trusted in Him, and He saved us! This is the Lord, in whom we trusted. Let us rejoice in the salvation He brings.”
Isaiah 25:9

Salvation is a word that means deliverance from the power and effects of sin, danger or difficulty by God’s intervention. We know as Christians we are free from the power of sin that is over us once we are saved. However, that does not mean as a believer we will never sin. Only when we are glorified will we be free from the presence of sin. That will be in eternity. As long as we are in this body of flesh we will find ourselves battling the temptation to sin. That also means we can overcome the temptation when we pray more, and use God’s word because the power of sin is gone when we are saved. That  being said we don’t always choose to not sin.

 Sometimes God allows difficulty in our lives to bring us to repent of sins we are overlooking. He then shows us our need to come to Him to sin less.  The Bible teaches us that we are in a work of salvation while we are here on earth. Once we get to Heaven the work in us will be complete and we will no longer sin. That will be a great day to be free from sin forever and to be with others who will never know sin again.

As we become closer to Jesus in our relationship we are more grieved when we sin and we become more sensitive to it. Salvation from God is the only way we can have a relationship with the Holy God. I know this message is a basic one, but I need to be reminded of how great salvation really is for me and for what Jesus did.

Never take for granted the greatest gift we can receive. Nothing in this life can compare to it.

Thank you Jesus for saving me.
