Treasure of Salvation – Prayer for Lent #day 35. In this time of Lent, we must be sure we cherish this treasure. It is an important treasure because through it we get a life. Salvation is what is keeping us away from the wrath of God, this is why we must keep it and never lost it.
Bible Verse for Today
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.” (Isaiah 12:2)
The reason why we must value this Salvation is that God is our salvation through Christ. This is a sacred thing that we must not allow to slip off our hands.
Let’s imagine an unfaithful servant that committed a crime and was sentenced to death. Because the master loves this servant regardless, he decided to give his only son to take the punishment of this unfaithful servant – after all these, what do you think will happen to this servant? This servant will never forget how he was saved – he would cherish the second chance so much that he will treasure it.
The same thing goes for every Christian. Through one man, Adam, death came to the world, and through Christ, salvation came to us.
Salvation is a treasure that we must cherish. People desire to live; they don’t want to see the second death which is the reward of sin. Salvation is only in Jesus Christ; no one can be saved except through Christ. Isaiah 51:6 “Lift your eyes to the sky, then look to the earth beneath; For the sky will vanish like smoke, and the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants will die in like manner, But my salvation will be forever, and my righteousness will not wane.”
The treasure of Salvation doesn’t lose value and it will not wear out, it stands forever.
If there is something we shouldn’t lose, it is our Salvation. According to the scripture, the earth and everything in it will be wiped out but the LORD’s Salvation would be forever which means anyone with this treasure will stand forever.
Salvation is a key to eternal life, anyone who has it has the key to eternal life!
