God's Salvation to Us

Dear readers,

I've been out from my daily routine this past week due to an injury. It's truly challenging, staying at home, not knowing how to best occupy my time. Well, a lot of my companions dropped by to see how I was doing. Their visitations were God's salvation to me, from wasting away my time doing other things. Whenever these ones came, they not only brought physical food but they were also ready to dispense spiritual food into my hungry spirit. We didn't do a serious Bible study or anything like that but... how should I say this? It was like they were living out the spiritual nourishment, Christ, into me in the most normal way.

I've also enjoyed reading an in-depth study of the Book of Exodus. I came across this matter of God's salvation depicted in the giving of God's law to the children of Israel in the Old Testament. Do you know what was God's original intention in giving out the law? In Exodus 19, this account was fully recorded.

It all started with a pleasant atmosphere. Jehovah was speaking in a lovely way. It was a word of love expressed by grace, "You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagle's wings and brought you unto Myself." This is God's salvation to us. It's not to just make us law-keepers, or to make us good people. God's salvation to us is to bring us back to Himself.

Every detail of our daily life has been arranged so that He can continually draw us to Himself. He has not only saved us from eternal perdition but He's saving us even now by bringing us back to Himself again and again.
