Devotion – December 7, 2015 – He Has Rescued You

colossians1_13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves…
—Colossians 1:13

We all were once in the dominion of darkness.  We are all born into sin.  Yet, Christ has broken into that kingdom and rescued you and brought you into the kingdom of the Son He loves.  Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, He defeated death and hell.  When God created faith your heart, He rescued you, personally, from sin, death, and hell and brought you into His loving kingdom of righteousness, life, and eternity with Him in Heaven.

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for breaking me out.  I was trapped in my sin and destined for eternal death.  I did nothing to earn Your love or mercy. Yet, You came to me and rescued me to bring me into the kingdom of Your beloved Son and my Lord, Jesus, Christ.  Thank you.

Amen
