That immediately got me thinking about my salvation through Jesus Christ. I know Who rescued who. Jesus rescued me! No question about it.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him. ~ Jesus Christ, as recorded in John 3:16
The word "saved" in the original Greek language means to:
- do well
- be made whole
That word "saved" emcompasses every aspect of our lives - spirit, soul, and body. It is a whole-man salvation.
March 7th marks my 29th birth day - the day I was born again and made into a new creation. Although, I have been on the receiving end of all on the above list countless times in these 29 years, I've always summed up my salvation as: I had been rescued. Jesus rescued me in the nick of time from:
- my negative, unhealthy thinking
- mental breakdown
- illness ravaging my body
- unhealed inner wounds that caused me not to be whole
- from an act that would have caused me to spend the rest of my life in prison
Hallelujah! I know Who rescued who! And I pray you do as well.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
