Let the Redeem of the Lord Say So!
1O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
Ask yourself this question, “Do you find yourself focusing more upon the “negative” things in life or the “positive?” If you are like most of us, myself included, we will have to shamefully admit that we have a tendency to focus more upon the “negative” than the “positive.” But, the Bible clearly teaches, “Let the redeemed (believers and followers of Christ Jesus) of the LORD say so!” Wow! That’s pretty positive…I AM REDEEMED! Saved by the Blood of Jesus Christ!
We live in a global society that is bombarded twenty-four hours/seven-days-a-week with the “negative,” bad happenings and events that occur around the world. Most of us can sit for hours and hours watching the same old horrible news played over and over again….Yet; for those of us who have been Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb we have something to shout about; a testimony of Praise to be shared!
Sadly, we, as Christians, have allowed our Voices of Praise to be silent for way too long. We have allowed the “negative” news of the world to dominate our hearts and minds. However, it is time that we, as Christians, stand up and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Is there a witness in the house!! It’s time to hold our heads high and testify to the amazing love and mercies of God through his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. For there is NO other way to obtain Salvation except through Jesus Christ…No matter what the news media and soothsayers may say.
Here’s a testimony of good news to share…During my husband’s thirty years of service in the ministry, we were blessed to meet, serve, and pastor so many wonderful people. We witnessed many lives changed and souls brought to Jesus by the power and mercies of God. And, I am grateful and thankful to the many people down throughout the years who lifted up our names in prayer on a daily basis. How truly wonderful…I have seen and experienced amazingly mighty acts of faith and astounding miracles throughout our years of service. And, I hope to see and witness many more before the second coming of our Lord! God is good. God is faithful!
For me personally, God’s Love changed my life. God’s Love changed my direction. God’s Love changed my final destiny. God’s Love forever changed my eternal future. How about your life? Has God changed your life? If so…Say so!!
So, today, if you are a Christian, you have a testimony of Praise….Even though you might be facing “negative” things in your life as I write; we all do from time to time, you can still rejoice in the Joys of Salvation….
Instead of focusing upon the “negative,” LET THE REDEEMED say so! Accentuate the “positive” found in Christ Jesus. Lift up your voice and let it be heard….Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!
Remember, God Loves You!
