Things That Follow Salvation (2/2):

There is more to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ than the mere salvation of our soul. His sacrifice also affords us a restoration, refreshing, renewal of our soul. [John 3:5, 8:32, 1:12, 10:10; Acts 3:19; Romans 12:2; James 1:21] He that the Son sets free is free indeed - Spirit, Soul, and Body. [John 8:36] Why are we focusing on one at the expense of the other.

None of our excuses hold water. They are simply baseless. I love the way C. S. Lewis puts it.

“Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under the omnipotent moral busybodies."

We have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. [Ephesians 1:3; 2 Peter 1:3-4] God did not provide them to keep them there. He provided so we can lay claim, lay hold, and bring them into reality for use in this present life, on this side of eternity. It is not only the "Sweet By and By." I need God here, today, in the "Sweet, Now and Today."

He is not only the God of Heaven. He is the God of the Earth also. [Psalm 24:1]
