I am…Rescued

I am…Rescued

i am...Rescued “For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,” Colossians 1:13 NIV

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9 ESV

We were born into darkness. We lived in darkness.
We have been slaves to darkness.

We sought the desires of our flesh. We were far from God and did not honor him in word or deed.

And then…

A rescuer came for us.

A rescuer came for me.

A rescuer came for you.

If you are in Christ, if you trust in Jesus, you were rescued from damnation, the dominion of hell, and have been given not earned salvation.

I imagine myself drowning in a dark ocean, going under repeatedly swallowing mouthfuls of water as I gasp for air.

Now I awaken daily to the reality that I am safely ashore and wrapped in the loving arms of the rescuer.

 

Remember today, if you are in Jesus, this too is your reality. You have been RESCUED from Satan’s domain and are now able be used to rescue others.
