BIBLE MEDITATION: ?I, even I, am the LORD; and beside Me there is no Savior.? Isaiah 43:11
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: It takes more of God?s power to save a soul through the cross of Jesus, than it does to do any other thing. God had no difficulty creating the universe. The Bible tells us that He spoke and it was so. But, when God wrote salvation?s story, He went to great difficulty. Let me illustrate. What if I held a service and had the power to straighten a cripple?s legs or to bring sight to the blind? The next service would be standing room only. Now, I certainly want God to heal, but let me tell you something else. What if I held a service and a little girl walked down the aisle and professed that God had saved her? That is a greater miracle than opening the eyes of the blind because the Son of God had to hang on a cross in agony and blood to purchase her salvation! Jesus did not come as a great healer or teacher, He came as a Savior.
ACTION POINT: How would you define what happens when God saves a person? Can you put it into wordsí Ask God to show you in His Word what salvation means and then try to put it into your own words. Share it with someone this week.
