Faith is not a once-done act, but a continuous gaze of the heart at the Triune God. -Tozer
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God. 1 Thessalonians 1:3-4
It has been said I am saved, I am being saved, and one day; I will be saved. Let me explain;
1. I am saved from my sin the day I trusted Jesus as Lord and Saviour and asked Him to forgive me of my sins.
2. I am being saved from myself each day I live for Him. It is when I give into my own selfish desires that God allows me to have my way and I end up in the slop pits of this world.
3. One day I will be saved from this world we live in. The temptations of this world are strong but I am thankful for scripture such as “…greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
Are you gazing at the heart of the Triune God? Or are you griping at the heart break of this world? I guess it all depends on if you’re saved or not!
