SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIOAL FOR JANUARY 12, 2022 (SAVED FROM WRATH)
TEXT: ROMANS 5:8-11
TOPIC: SAVED FROM WRATH
young boy lost his fathers golden ring. He was no longer confident before his father because of his actions. Though his father forgave him but the son was no longer as free as he used to be with his father because he was still carrying the guilt of his sin at heart. There are Christians who still carry the burden of guilt at heart after they have surrendered their lives to Christ. It may sound too cheap to know that our sins have been forgiven and we are justified by the blood of Jesus Christ once we confess our sins and believe in Him as our Lord and Saviour.
shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!” Romans 5:9, MVSince we have now been justified by his blood, how much more
Some of the benefits of our salvation that are too good for an ordinary mind to conceive include; reconciliation to God, no more living under the wrath of God; and experiencing eternal joy in Christ Jesus. Being ignorant of the grace and justification this great sacrifice of the blood shed on the cross has brought us, not being able to know and have access to all these benefits, but to continue to keep carrying the burden of sin and guilt are the devil’s intentions.
Let nothing or nobody make you feel guilty of your past sins. Once you confess to them and ask for God’s mercy by accepting Him into your life, you are saved and free from all sins. Always rejoice and be at peace in the Lord because you have eternal rest in Christ. Do not settle for the devil’s deceit. Live a victorious Christian life and have in mind that you are saved through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
Insight: No true child of God should still be guilty of his past sins.
Prayer: 1 choose to live joyfully in the Lord, help me 0 Lord not to carry the guilt of my past sins but to put my absolute trust in Your saving grace.
