Though you have not seen Him, you love Him and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls. —1 Peter 1:6-9
When I wake in the morning I splash my face, throw on some cloths then get started making our breakfast. I don’t think in those 15 or so minutes I consider, even for a second, that I am at that very time receiving the goal of my faith. I make my cup of tea then sit down for my quiet time….and even then I don’t think I really consider that at that very moment I am receiving the salvation of my soul. I think, I may be missing some of the joy because my perspective is so earthbound. Inexpressible joy comes when we have a heavenly perspective, an eternal vision of what our time here means, because it is only then that we can really understand what matters.
I have not seen Him, but I love Him! I believe in Him, and every single day of my life I am receiving the goal of my faith, the salvation of my soul!
