Psalm 71:7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
Are you considered “a WONDER unto many?” You should be! People should wonder what in the world happened to you. All your friends and co-workers should wonder what happened to the language you used and the jokes you use to listen to and tell. They should wonder why you are not going out to the bars or parties with them anymore after work. Your neighbors should wonder why it is that every Sunday morning and every Sunday night they see you and your family dressed up and leaving for church instead of having a Bar-B-Q or going to the beach. Your family should wonder why the things that would previously find their way onto your TV set just do not seem to be there anymore.
If you are living a life for Christ, these wonders have taken place and maybe you do not notice them. I guess the person who should be most amazed is you. Do you wonder why an almighty God would send His only Son to die for you? Do you wonder why, out of the millions of people around you, it was your eyes, which were opened to the wonders of God’s grace, and now you are a child of God? Have you ever wondered how it is God, who knows everything, says He will remember your sins NO MORE? Oh, the WONDER of it all.
God made a choice to send His Son to save your sins. God made a choice to reveal the truths of the gospel for salvation so you could live with Him eternally. God makes a choice to forgive and to forget your sins, which are washed in the blood. That is what your God has chosen to do for you. What have you chosen to do for God? Be a WONDER in this world!
