Further up and further in: Ezekiel 33:1-16; 2 Peter 3
1 Peter 1:8-9 - You rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy, because you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Lord Jesus Christ, when you came to this earth you were concerned with one thing. When you lived on this earth, you wanted one thing. When you walked to the cross and put your shoulder to it, you did it with one purpose in mind. All that you did, you did it for me. You saw my soul and my life hanging in the balance and you gave up yours for mine. You saw my face and the sin of mine that would have damned me to hell, and you suffered hell for me. Fill me with a boundless joy to know that everything you did during your life and everything you’re doing during my life is so that you can save me. I also pray, Lord Jesus, do whatever it takes so that I might spend an eternity with you in heaven. Save me, Lord Jesus, for I am yours, redeemed by your blood.
