The children of Israel were told to celebrate the Passover every year so that they would remember and never forget how the Lord saved them out of Egypt. Rabbi Shaul/Paul at the end of his life called himself the biggest sinner. True, he had once opposed the Gospel, but his life as an enemy of God was long over and even long forgotten. He had been in the Lord for decades, known throughout the world as a saint. But at the end of his life, he tells the story of getting saved as if it were yesterday. This principle is as old as Passover. If you want to get to the Promised Land, you must never stop thanking God for taking you out of Egypt. Never forget how He saved you. Peter wrote that those who lack godly qualities are those who have forgotten their salvation. Give thanks to the Lord for saving you out of Egypt as if it just happened, and one day, you’ll give thanks to the Lord for bringing you into the Promised Land.
TODAY’S MISSION – Today, practice the principle of Passover by giving thanks for how God saved you and delivered you from bondage. Live as if you just got saved today.
