Today's Verse : Colossians 1:13


December 3, 2011

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought
us into the kingdom of the Son he loves...
-- Colossians 1:13
God doesn't just hear our cries for deliverance; he sends a
powerful Deliverer! God sent Moses in response to the Israelites'
cries from Egypt (see Exodus 3). God also sent Jesus in response to
the world's cries for deliverance from its bondage to the evil
prince of darkness. Our new world, our Kingdom, is built on love --
the sacrificial love of a Savior who not only conquered death for
us, but gave himself up to do so. Jesus is not only our rescuer
(saves us FROM something), he is also our Savior (also saves us FOR
something as well)!
Loving and eternal God, in Jesus you reached down to my limited
and mortal world and rescued me from its mortal limits. Thank you
for breaking the strangle hold of death. Thank you for using love
to break down the barriers that kept me from you. Thank you for
rescuing me and bringing me into your family and your Kingdom. I
offer you my thanks, service, and praise in Jesus' name. Amen.
