The way of salvation


The way of salvation

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Suggested Further Reading: Isaiah 12

What a great word that word ‘salvation’ is!
 It includes the cleansing of our conscience from all past guilt, 
the delivery of our soul from all those propensities to evil which now so strongly predominate in us; it takes in, in fact, the undoing of all that Adam did. 

Salvation is the total restoration of man from his fallen estate; and yet it is something more than that, for God’s salvation fixes our standing more secure than it was before we fell.

 It finds us broken in pieces by the sin of our first parent, defiled, stained, accursed: it first heals our wounds, it removes our diseases, it takes away our curse, it puts our feet upon the rock Christ Jesus, and having thus done, at last it lifts our heads far above all principalities and powers, to be crowned for ever with Jesus Christ, the King of heaven.

 Some people, when they use the word ‘salvation,’ understand nothing more by it than deliverance from hell and admittance into heaven. Now, that is not salvation: those two things are the effects of salvation. 

We are redeemed from hell because we are saved, and we enter heaven because we have been saved beforehand. Our everlasting state is the effect of salvation in this life. 

Salvation, it is true, includes all that, because salvation is the mother of it, and carries it within its bowels; but still it would be wrong for us to imagine that is the whole meaning of the word. 

Salvation begins with us as wandering sheep, it follows us through all our confused wanderings; it puts us on the shoulders of the shepherd; it carries us into the fold; it calls together the friends and the neighbours; it rejoices over us; it preserves us in that fold through life; and then at last it brings us to the green pastures of heaven, beside the still waters of bliss, where we lie down for ever, in the presence of the Chief Shepherd, never more to be disturbed.

For meditation: 

Past salvation from sin’s penalty (justification):
 present salvation from sin’s power (sanctification): 
prospective salvation from sin’s presence (glorification)—
what a great salvation (Hebrews 2:3). 
Don’t miss it.

Before and During the Call



Before and During the Call 

"It shall come to pass, that before they call, 
I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, l will hear"   
(Isaiah 65:24).

Quick work this! The LORD hears us before we call and often answers us in the same speedy manner. Foreseeing our needs and our prayers, He so arranges providence that before the need actually arises He has supplied it, before the trial assails us He has armed us against it.

 This is the promptitude of omniscience, and we have often seen it exercised. 
Before we dreamed of the affliction which was coming, the strong consolation which was to sustain us under it had arrived. 

What a prayer-answering God we have! The second clause suggests the telephone. 
Though God be in heaven and we upon earth, yet He makes our word, like His own word, to travel very swiftly, When we pray aright we speak into the ear of God. 

Our gracious Mediator presents our petitions at once, and the great Father hears them and smiles upon them. Grand praying this! Who would not be much in prayer when he knows that he has the ear of the King of kings? This day I will pray in faith, not only believing that I shall be heard, but that I am heard; not only that I shall be answered, but that I have the answer already. 

Holy Spirit, help me in this!

Waiting, Not Running


Waiting, Not Running 

"Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation"   
(Psalm 62:1).

Blessed posture! Waiting truly and only upon the LORD. 
Be this our condition all this day and every day. 
Waiting His leisure, waiting in His service, waiting in joyful expectation, waiting in prayer, and content. 

When the very soul thus waits, it is in the best and truest condition of a creature before his Creator, a servant before his Master, a child before his Father. We allow no dictation to God, nor complaining of Him; we will permit no petulance and no distrust. 

At the same time, we practice no running before the cloud and no seeking to others for aid: neither of these would be waiting upon God. God, and God alone, is the expectation of our hearts. 
Blessed assurance! From Him salvation is coming; it is on the road. 

It will come from Him and from no one else. 
He shall have all the glory of it, for He alone can and will perform it.
 And He will perform it most surely in His own time and manner. 

He will save from doubt, and suffering, and slander, and distress. 
Though we see no sign of it as yet, we are satisfied to bide the LORD's will, for we have no suspicion of His love and faithfulness. 

He will make sure work of it before long, and we will praise Him at once for the coming mercy.
