Do You Feel Safe?

NOVEMBER 10, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    JAILED! INCARCERATED! IMPRISONED! LOCKED AWAY! All these words sound scary to most of us. The idea of being put somewhere, the doors locked, and never being able to get out, sounds way too restrictive. Most people just want to be free. Free to roam around and do what they will. Now if I use words like, SAFETY, PROTECTION, SECURITY, or PROVIDED FOR these words all sound good to us. Why? It gives us a sense of peace and happiness to know we are safe and taken care of. Guess what? People in jail are, for the most part, safe, protected, secure, and provided for. So, what makes the difference?

    Jail and Prison are somewhere we are placed usually against our will. We do not choose to go there. We are placed there because we have violated others’ rights. However, if there was a riot in the streets and an abandon prison building really close, you might choose to go there for a time to escape the riot. You would be safe inside its walls.

    In the past, villages would build walls around their city to keep out attackers. People today put in security systems, build fences, etc., just to feel safe. These are all just bigger borders we voluntarily place ourselves in for protection. We live in houses with locks, in cities with Police, in a State with a National Guard, and a nation with a military that protects us. We are free in the boundaries of our voluntary borders. Leave the country and you are warned when you go, “You go at your own risk, and we cannot guarantee your safety out there.” In our verse today, we can find safety in one word. The word is “IN.” Those who are IN Christ Jesus, you are safe, secure, protected, and provided for because you voluntarily placed yourself in Him.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Once you place yourself IN Him you are eternally safe. You can never leave Him. In case you forgot, He is everywhere, so where would you go? On the other hand, maybe you think you might be strong enough to break free from His hold. OOPS! That won’t happen either. Cause you are NOT THAT STRONG. You are safe IN JESUS!
