CELEBRATE YOUR SALVATION Friday, 17 April 2015
“That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.” Psalm 9:14 (KJV)
Beloved, I realize that many of us have not fully comprehended what took place when we invited Jesus into our hearts. We have not really come to the understanding of the mystery of salvation. It is something you really have to sit back and meditate over. There is so much inside your salvation. It is not just the forgiveness of sins. There is so much investment, so much treasure such that when you understand, there will be no cause for sadness even if other needs in your life are delayed. I challenge you to stop, think and take a look at yourself again. Take your eyes away from your challenges, and focus on who you are in Christ and the exceeding riches of His grace towards you. Learn to wake up every morning and rejoice at the break of another day. Celebrate each day and expect good to happen to you because head or tail; you win. Whichever way it falls; you win. You are a winner all the time. All things are working together for your good.
The only person who does not have a reason to celebrate is the unbeliever who has not yet had the salvation experience. Beloved, if you are blessed with everything in life and you don’t have the presence of God, your joy is just but for a moment. It is temporal and will never last. Let me use this opportunity to ask you to think about God’s greatest gift to mankind – Jesus Christ. He is a gift to everyone who receives Him as Lord and Saviour. My prayer is that you will receive Him as your Lord and Saviour after reading this piece and if you have already, you will rejoice at the incredible wealth of His grace and loving kindness towards us and go ahead to fill the air with salvation songs.
As you go about your activities, remember that, He who hath begun a good work in you will surely perform it. God has no abandoned projects. My God will exceed your expectations. You will surely testify. I bless you in Jesus name.
