Day 30 Celebrating Immanuel
“And Simeon spoke, “For my eyes have seen thy (God’s) Salvation…” (Luke 2: 30 KJV)
In closing my thirty-part series on, “Celebrating Immanuel,” let me ask you this question, “Have your eyes seen God’s Salvation?”
First, you may ask, “What is salvation?” According to the dictionary, salvation is the saving of somebody or something from harm, destruction, difficulty, or failure.
Christian Salvation is believing in the Person, Jesus Christ, as being our eternal Saving Savior from all sin, harm, destruction, difficulty, and failure…We are saved from our Sins through the sinless Blood of Jesus Christ. We are saved from eternal harm through the victorious Blood of Jesus Christ. We are saved from final destruction by the miraculous Blood of Jesus Christ. We are delivered from painful difficulty and enduring failure through the sustaining Blood of Jesus Christ. Through the Blood of Jesus Christ we are Saved!
You ask me how I know I’m Saved? Because He lives within my heart! Just as Simeon saw Jesus in person on that historic day I, too, have seen Him through Faith and by Faith. What is Faith? The substance of things HOPED for and the evidence of things NOT yet seen! (Hebrews 11:1). We, as Christians, see Jesus through the eyes of Faith. We see Him through our Hearts and our Minds. We feel His presence in our hearts and lives…And, each day, as we continue to believe in Him, He reveals Himself to us more and more. How? Through His Word, The Holy Bible.
Oh, my friend, you too can see Jesus today by faith. All you have to do is BELIEVE. BELIEVE IN GOD. BELIEVE IN GOD’S ONLY SON, JESUS CHRIST, SAVIOR OF THE WORLD…For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not die but have everlasting life! (John 3:16)….Jesus saves us from eternal death (eternal separation from God)! Now, that’s Salvation! Hallelujah!
I, like Simeon, Praise the Lord for my eyes have seen the Salvation of God! Thank you Sweet Jesus…Amen.
Remember, God Loves You!
