“I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand” (Jn 10:28)
One thing that surprises me each time we come to the US is the amount of disposables that fill the trash cans. It is true that using them makes the work easier. You eat from a paper plate and drink soda from a paper cup. No need for washing. I use this ‘method’ too when I am here. But seeing so many disposable things filling the trash cans all over the place affects my spirit. Not immediately but slowly it erodes my understanding and my appreciation for eternal things ‘that never perish’. i need to remind myself today: the salvation of my soul and the blessings of Christ are Eternal!!!
I was somehow troubled these few days and I did not know why. By faith, I take my eyes from this world with its disposable trash and once more I look unto Jesus. This morning my spirit is once more at peace simply by remembering that I am a child of God, that my salvation in Christ Jesus is eternal. No man or demon will ever find my name in a disposable trash can, for it is written in the Lamb’s Book of life and on the palm of the hand of God. No man or demon can boast of snatching me from the embrace of my Savior. For that is totally impossible. It is the promise of God! ‘Kings and kingdoms shall pass away but there is something about Your name…’
I declare that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Lord! I declare that my salvation is sure and eternal! Forever! Now I feel better… May the peace of God that passes all understanding settle in your hearts today!In Jesus name, amen!
