We Are Save From Something... And For Something.

If you have the gift of salvation, you need to learn that there is a huge difference between being saved from something and being saved for something. When you are saved from something, the focus is on you, what you get out of it.
While it is true that salvation are about the following:
* you not going to hell
* you not having to pay the penalty you deserve
* you getting God's mercy
* you receiving God's grace
* you getting to be with God for all eternity
* you having Christ prepare a place for you in His Father's mansion.
We need to know when we are saved for something, the focus is on God, and now our salvation means the following purposes:
* pointing to God's mercy
* worshiping Him
* giving Him the glory He deserves
* exalting His for His greatness
* singing His praise for ever and ever
I am saved! I glorify God for all the things He did in my life! Praise His holy name!

God is always there to help us and guide us in a different ways. We just have to be sincere in our prayers that really comes from our heart.

That is a wonderful reminder about how we are saved FOR something, Grace. The Lord has purpose in all that He does. I always think of Romans 8:28 -

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
