When we accept Jesus as Lord, as our Savior—our salvation for all of eternity is accomplished. Done! Finiti!
Isn’t that fabulous?! We need never to fear damnation or death again! Jesus bore all the weight for our sins—we are forgiven! Jesus conquered death through His eternal resurrection—we have been given the promise of eternal life from the Life Giver Himself!
Our salvation is sure from the day—from the very moment—we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior!
It’s our transformation for which we need to make day by day—moment by moment—choices.
Jesus Christ saves us from the power of sin and death. He just as passionately desires to transform us from the habits and patterns of thinking and speaking and acting that limit us from living in the full grace, truth, freedom, power and love that He has for us right now on this side of Heaven!
So, then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6
We should overflow with thankfulness for our eternal salvation! Its promise of eternal life with our Holy God is beyond hope, beyond joy—and I believe Heaven is well beyond anything I could ever, ever imagine!
And we should overflow with thankfulness for the unlimited resurrection power of our Lord and Savior Jesus to bring true and amazing transformation to our lives here and now! Our Lord desires, and is able to, continually free us from every twisted lie and destructive pattern we have latched onto in our minds and in lives. We have to make the continual choice to let Him do it!
God’s passionate, powerful, saving, transforming love offers to give us life for all eternity…and for each moment! Let’s take God up on His offer!
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
