Salvation: Something More

Salvation: Something More

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
    of whom shall I be afraid? -Psalm 27:1-2, NRSV

Reflect:  What does salvation mean to you?  Is it something about this life, the  afterlife, or both?  How might salvation be a process that is happening within your life everyday?

Reflect:  Have you experienced Christians who use fear tactics in evangelism?  Reflect on some of those experiences.  How did/does fear of not being saved affect you?  Can relationships based on fear be truly authentic?  What is a healthy relationship with Jesus based upon?

Practice:  Throughout each day this week, pay attention to the process of salvation in your life.  For example, at the end of each day, ask yourself:  Where was God’s work of salvation in my life today?

I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong, and let your heart take courage;
    wait for the Lord! -Psalm 27:13-14, NRSV
