OUR PROTECTIVE SAVIOUR
“STAND fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”
Galatians 5:1 KJV
Pastor Edward Mote wrote one of my favorite hymns “My Hope Is Built”. I love the words in this beautiful hymn. “My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.” We can trust Jesus. He will never fail us.
We need to keep our eyes on Jesus and only on Him. Don’t look to your pastor or to your Sunday school teacher and for sure don’t look to me because we are human and might fail you even if we don’t want to fail you. Look to Jesus and Him alone! He loves you so much He died for you and He will protect you.
Not only does Jesus save us from our sins, He also protects and saves us from the evil and danger in the world. We need to stay on the alert and watch for the sneaky attacks of satan so he doesn’t lead us astray. Jesus Himself told us to watch for the sneaky and vicious attacks of satan.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world” (1 Peter 5:8-9). Are we watching for the attacks of satan?
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You gave Your beloved Son to die on the cross for our sins. You are a loving compassionate Father and I love You. Thank You for adopting me into Your family. Jesus, thank You for dying for me and protecting me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
