March 19, 2010, "Accepting Jesus' Gift of Salvation"

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written By: Teresa Criswell


"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
~ John 3:16 ~


Lord Jesus, I am in awe, amazed, impressed, moved and touched to the deepest parts of me that I get to talk to You,. I get to talk to You at any time, at any moment. Thank You that Your promise of the Holy Spirit lives within me as I have accepted Your gift of Salvation. I am also in great wonder that You don't force Your gift on anyone. It is us that You allow to accept or reject You.

Lord, You do not force or rub in our faces of what You did. You offer us a gift, and it is our choice to receive or reject it. I am so grateful that after all those years of rejecting You that I finally accepted You. Not just because I can say, "I am saved." But I can say, "Look who I get to be a daughter of...I'm a daughter of the King and I get to embrace You." The threshold, once I crossed over into Salvation, I never knew what could be had; until I truly met You. It is no longer about an idea of who You are; but actually knowing who You are! I am learning glimpses of who You are moment by moment and I am enthralled by You! I am beyond enthralled and captured by Your tender mercies.

Lord, I want to realize at every moment; the awesome times, the real trying times that I need and desire You at every moment. I don't want to jump up and down because of Your blessings; I want to jump up an down because I get to praise and worship You; the One who rescued me from myself and eternal separation from God.

Jesus, I thank You. I am eternally grateful that I could accept You as my Lord and Savior. I pray that others will accept You not only because of what You did; but because my life reveals what You have done and continue to do and they want and desire what I have
.
From the depths of my soul and spirit, Your beautiful rescuing power digs a well of gratitude that spews out with such force as I am humbled by Your great Love!
