I was doing this assignment for class and got a bit stirred up so i decided to post it.
WHAT WAS I SAVED FROM?
I was saved from hopelessness. Living thinking that my life would ultimately culminate in death. I had a God given desire to build a kingdom on earth, but i saw it as pointless since it would fade when i died. Now i use that desire to build the kingdom of God on earth because it is eternal. I was saved from restlessness that was my soul longing for a God. I now have purpose. From the depths of a pit of hate and darkness Christ extended his hand and showed me what love was. Death itself can no longer touch me.
WHAT WAS I SET FREE FROM?
FEAR OF MAN! I worship completely undignified before the Lord. My life cries out relentlessly for all listening to turn their eyes to jesus. I am free from feeling like i have to be somebody. I am a son of the living God… That’s quite the resume for anyone. But it doesn’t stop there i’m ridiculously in love with Jesus and i love it. I hold nothing back and look only to the heavens for a “well done my good and faithful servant” My reward is in heaven.
WHAT WAS I SAVED FOR?
I was saved for the glory of my God. My eyes are redeemed to see his kingdom come on earth. My ears to hear his words of wisdom and comfort. My nose to smell the fragrance of Christ that i may burn leaving the same smell. My mouth to proclaim his glory in all the earth and all the nations. My mind to grasp how deep, how wide, and how high his love is. To know him and make him known wherever he calls. Whenever he speaks. Whatever God desires.
