Moment of Celebration – Salvation Drawing Near

September 9th, 2014

Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the salvation that is drawing nearer.

When someone comes to faith in Christ, there are changes that occur within us. We become a new creation in Christ. He becomes our source of trust and confidence.  We are blessed with peace in knowing that our sins are forgiven, and are brought into God’s family of believers. These are welcome changes to the new believer.

However, this world is not all there is. The best is yet to come. This anticipation keeps hope alive and purifies our faith as we draw closer to our ultimate destiny with Christ.

Romans 13:11 says, “And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness, and put on the armor of light.”

With each step of faith, we are honoring God’s name and moving toward the goal for which Christ Jesus has called us heavenward.

The salvation of the Lord is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
