During church this morning our pastor reminded us that if we are in Christ Jesus we are like Noah when he was in the ark. Noah was safe and secure even in the storms, even in the driving rain, even if he tripped and fell, even if he was wobbly on his feet, even if he wondered if the storm would ever end, even if he wondered if God would remember him and his family, Noah was safe in the ark.
I needed that reminder, that even in the times when I feel so small, when the storms are raging and I’m so very wobbly on my faith-feet, even when I’m tripping and falling, I am always safe in Christ.
Christ Jesus paid the price for our sins and our failures, His unfailing love, grace, and mercy sets us forever free and forever safe.
If you are in Christ…
you are forgiven.
you are eternally secure and soul-safe.
you are free in Christ.
you are never alone.
you are loved now and forever.
you have access to God.
you have hope forever.
and, you always get a happy-ending.
Remember always, no matter what is happening, no matter how small your faith may be, no matter how wobbly you are, if you are in Christ you are safe forever.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore there is now no condemnation [no guilty verdict, no punishment] for those who are in Christ Jesus [who believe in Him as personal Lord and Savior]. For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” ~ Romans 6:23 (AMP), Romans 8:1-2 (AMP)
“Fling wide, then, the portals of your soul. He will come with that love which you long to feel; he will come with that joy into which you cannot work your poor depressed spirit; he will bring the peace which now you have not. … Only open the door to him, drive out his enemies, give him the keys of your heart, and he will dwell there forever. Oh, wondrous love, that brings such a guest to dwell in such a heart! …
“The whole of Christ, in His adorable character as the Son of God, is by Himself made over to us most richly to enjoy. His wisdom is our direction, his knowledge our instruction, his power our protection, his justice our surety, his love our comfort, his mercy our solace, and his immutability our trust. He makes no reserve, but opens the recesses of the Mount of God and bids us dig in its mines for the hidden treasures.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
