DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Glorify God For Your Salvation
We all say that salvation is free. Yes, free indeed for us who receive it, but very costly for Him who purchased it for us – it cost Him His life, a cruel and agonizing death on the cross. We sometimes let the thought of what it cost Jesus to redeem us escape our minds. At such times we are tempted to wander away into sin, ingratitude and complaining about what we are going through. We have gone through the pains of realizing that those whom we have helped did not appreciate our sacrifice. We should not display such ingratitude to Jesus Christ our Saviour. We should spend time to glorify God for working out a way for us to be reconciled to Him, and give praise to Jesus for going through the torture that brought us salvation – especially those of us that have no physical root in Abraham. As you praise God in words, also glorify Him by living a life pleasing unto Him.
Point of Emphasis: Glorify God for His mercy and forgiveness.
Prayer Point: I bless Your name, God, for redeeming me from eternal damnation.
