Let’s look at this example, you are gifted a full subscription package to a leisure centre, they give you a contract and policy information but you don’t read through it.
The result of this is, you go in there and probably use the gym or whichever one that seems of interest to you. The facility might have a sauna, group exercise, personal training, swimming, creche and many other perks but as a result of not reading through the policy, you miss out on the perks (most of us never read the T&Cs to be honest – ….I am guilty of that)
This can apply to us as believers…we have been given the FREE gift of Salvation, yet through deception and ignorance we fail to enjoy the full benefits of salvation.
The mansion of salvation was given to us to enjoy here on earth and continue in Heaven. It’s not ok to just be saved and just accept being poor, limited, sick, bound, oppressed and barely surviving.
Inside the box of salvation, you have but not limited to:
The Blood of Jesus
The righteousness of Christ
All sins paid for
Authority and Power
Your identity in Christ
An instruction manual – the Word of God
A teacher – the Holy Spirit who will enlighten you through the Word.
2Peter 1:3 says “According as his divine power hath GIVEN unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”
The word GIVEN is a past tense….meaning it is already been done. An understanding of this knowledge will enable you to walk in the fullness of what Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross did.
I encourage you to unwrap your personal gift of salvation today through the eyes of the Holy Spirit.
We are to the Kingdom of God, ambassadors on earth to show forth God’s glory.
Have a blessed day ❤
