Today's Verse : Colossians 1:13-14


January 13, 2012

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought
us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have
redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
-- Colossians 1:13-14
Rescued! Redeemed! Forgiven! Those are the three concepts in
this short passage. But, maybe the most important one of all is
represented by the phrase, "Son he loves." God didn't save us with
a plan, or a message, or a clean and immaculate process. Instead,
he took what was most precious to him and offered Jesus up as our
salvation. The cost was enormous. The love involved was
overwhelming. The result is our greatest gift.
Almighty God and Loving Father, neither my words nor my deeds
could ever repay the gift you have given me in Jesus. Jesus, my
appreciation for your sacrifice moves me to tears of joyful
thanksgiving. For all that you have done, for all that you have
made me, and for all that it cost you, I praise you and offer my
life as a sacrifice of praise. In your name, Lord Jesus, I offer up
my praise. Amen.
