HOST: Michael Whitworth
“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
“It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Have you ever given thought to that idea? We know that God sent His Son into the world to redeem us from sin. We know that, through Him, He offers us the opportunity to be in relationship with Him. We know that God has promised a home in heaven to those who are saved through Christ. But have you ever considered the idea that doing these things brings pleasure to God? God wants us to be saved. He yearns for it. To take our sins away and to make us His children brings joy to the heart of God. To see people come to Him in faith and obedience makes Him smile. So great is the love of God for us that he delights in being our Father and blessing us with all things, spiritually and physically. What a wonderful thought to know that, not only does God save us, but that it is His pleasure to do so.
Why do you think God finds pleasure in saving us?
Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
