What, O Christian, Has God Done For You?

in Devotion

I started a tradition over at my other site (where I talk about the bible and money), where I would post a devotional thought on most Sundays. I then continued that practice on Fat Guy Skinny Wallet, but it’s been a while since I posted a devotion message here. Hopefully, this will once again become a weekly practice.

They will either be based on my own personal study, or from another source.

Today I want to present you with several very helpful thoughts about what God has done for us in salvation, by John MacDuff (courtesy of Grace Gems):

(John MacDuff, “Looking unto Jesus!” 1856)

Consider what great things He has done for you!” 1 Samuel 12:24

What, O Christian, has God done for you?

He has blotted out your sins from the book of His remembrance.

He has regenerated you, and made you a new creature in Christ Jesus.

He has destroyed the enmity of your carnal mind, and shed abroad His love in your heart, by the Holy Spirit whom He has given you.

He has delivered you from the tyranny of Satan, and translated you from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His beloved Son.

He has, in a word, reconciled you to Himself, justified you freely by His grace, adopted you into His family, and given you a name and place in His house, better than that of sons or of daughters!
