How good is your insurance policy, for yourself, your car, your house, your everything? These days there is some kind of an insurance for anything and everything. It is a cash cow!
So why exactly do we get insurance? We all know the answer to that. We need to get coverage for everything... JUST IN CASE.
There is however, one type of coverage we need, and whether you like it or not, we need it desperately.
God in the old testament provided coverage for the Israelites when He sent a plague to Egypt so that all the firstborn males would be killed. God instructed the Israelites to paint the doors of their house with the blood of a lamb so that the plague would "pass over" them. They had spiritual coverage. So if they needed it in those days, what makes us think we won't need it in the coming days?
It is promised according to the Book of Revelation that there will come an end time when Jesus will come back and those who have not been saved will be subjected to the Tribulation. Yes, God sacrificed His only Son and His blood is the blood that will allow the Tribulation to "pass over" us, that is, if you are saved! The best part of this coverage is that it's free. Free for the asking. Jesus only requires that you sign the contract that you are acknowledging Him as the very person who will save you from that catastrophic even that will FOR SURE happen! How awesome is our God? He didn't have to do that. Why then did He, you ask? BECAUSE HE LOVES US! His love is a different kind of love. Your spouse, your child, your parents could love you but only to a certain degree, because as human beings we are limited in the love we can give. At a certain point, there are conditions to our love, because we are not perfect.
God, however, is perfect. His love is perfect! His grace is perfect! His blessings are perfect and His salvation insurance coverage for us is perfect! It is the best coverage ever! When He forgives, He forgets. When you are forgiven, your sins are as far as the east is to the west, and we all know those two never meet!
What are you waiting for?
Until my next rant.... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
