The word means “to free from danger, harm, or confinement.”
Delivered. Redeemed. Ransomed. Reclaimed. Saved.
All words that share meaning with rescued. All words that describe exactly what God has done for you as a Jesus follower.
To be rescued implies that you were living in danger…out of place.
Stuck. Helpless. Vulnerable. In a kingdom you didn’t belong.
But, then God came in and ransomed you.
He reclaimed you. You belong to Him.
Are you living like it?
Or, are you living stuck in the mess of your sin? Out of place…
Every day is choice.
Live stuck or live rescued.
How will you choose to live today?
“We…pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father, who has enabled you to share the inheritance that belongs to God’s holy people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness, and he has brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son. God has purchased our freedom with his blood and has forgiven all our sins.”
Colossians 1:11-14 (NLT) (italics mine)
