Current Study: A to Z
Today’s Topic: Short and Sweet – I’m Saved!
Today’s Scripture: Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
I really don’t like being obvious. Unfortunately, most people who know me tell me I am. I don’t hide things well. My thoughts become spoken words too quickly. My facial expressions are clear windows to my heart. My tears flow easily. There are days I wish I could hide more. Today is not one of them.
If I were to take a poll of all of the readers, I wonder how many would say that the most obvious “S” word of the faith is “salvation”? Now, if we took that same poll of people outside the faith, how many would answer with the word “sin”?
Here’s my simple point to ponder for today. When the people of the world think about Christianity, what word comes to their minds first – sin or salvation? What do we talk about the most when referencing people of the world – sin or salvation? What is the most frequent topic of our conversations with one another – sin or salvation? What is most obvious to people about our theology and doctrine – sin or salvation?
Uh-Oh! Here come the tears…
Our God is mighty to save! He takes great delight in us. In the midst of any storm, He quiets us with his love. When He looks at us, He rejoices over us with singing. Let it be obvious in me all day and every day. I am saved!
