“He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us.” ~ 2 Corinthians 1:10
If I desire anything, I desire to make much of Christ. To intentionally live in a way that brings most glory and honor to Him. Do I do this perfectly? Heck no. I didn’t really grasp that until eight years ago when I gave my live to Christ but since then, I have known Jesus as my Deliverer from all of my ugly shortcomings and I am ever so grateful. He loves me too much to leave me the way I am, and I can promise you He feels the same way about you. He teaches me daily because I allow Him to work.
I’m proof of His mighty deliverance and sanctification. Christ was delivered over to death so that we might be delivered from death. Becoming more like Christ is the hardest thing ever. It requires dying to self everyday, something that doesn’t come naturally to any of us. But knowing Christ as your Deliverer is knowing what true peace is. What true love is. What true grace is. What true mercy is. Knowing that He won’t remove all your trials, but He’ll walk with you through them.
