For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. - Colossians 1:13-14
The phrase ‘in whom we have redemption’ reminds me of:
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe. - Proverbs 18:10
It’s so easy to get distracted and forget the Lord in our everyday, but I want you to know today, Ben (yes – I am talking to my soul again) that it is IN HIM that you will find what you need, and even what you want.
The only place to weather the storms of life is IN HIM.
The only place to stand when facing the wrath of men is IN HIM.
The only place to live life with abundance is IN HIM.
And the only place to stand when facing the judgment of God is IN HIM.
IN HIM you have redemption.
IN HIM you have freedom.
IN HIM you have eternal life (as defined in John 17:3 – knowing God and His dear Son)
IN HIM you have safety.
Lord, help me be aware of my heavenly seat – help we walk worthy of that calling today. Amen.
