Redemption for Life (3)

In Revelation 22:1 we see the river of water of life (the Spirit) flowing out from the throne of God and the Lamb, showing the Triune God as our Redeemer and our Life.

Romans 5:10-11 declare, “For if we, being enemies, were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more we will be saved in His life, having been reconciled, and not only so, but also boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Reconciliation through the death of Christ is one aspect of His redemptive work on the cross. This has been accomplished once for all. It is an eternal fact. Therefore, these verses say that we have been reconciled and have received this reconciliation.

Christ not only died; He also rose from the dead. Through His resurrection we all have been regenerated (1 Peter 1:3). Now we have the divine, eternal life. Receiving the Triune God’s redemption and regeneration is our salvation and we can declare that “by grace we have been saved” (Ephesians 2:5, 8). John 10:28-29 are very firm that no one can undo this salvation.

We have already been saved eternally, yet Romans 5:10 says, “we will be saved in His life.” This is our ongoing experience, our daily salvation in the life we have received. This daily salvation is from so many negative things in our living, such as impatience, coveting, and anger. It is also a salvation into many positive things, such as loving others with the love of God, having a life full of forbearance, and speaking about the Lord to unsaved people. Lord, we thank you for Your eternal salvation and ask for more saving in our living today and every day.
