God Saves

Let go and live.

~~~

Psalm 31:5-6
Free me from the net they have set for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hands I commend my spirit; you will redeem me, Lord, faithful God.

~~~

Sometimes it feels like everyone and everything is conspiring against us.

Sometimes we feel completely abandoned.

Jesus felt this.

When the Son of God was thoroughly rejected and hanging on the cross…he quoted Psalm 31: “Into your hands I commend my spirit.”

Life is a moment-by-moment “letting go.”

It’s a surrendering of the things we thought at one time were so important but which really aren’t important at all.

It will feel like dying.

When we “let go” of these “attachments” and turn ourselves over to the One who loves and sustains us…God redeems us. In other words…God restores us and makes us whole.

Only God can give us what we truly need.

Jesus showed us the way to new life. It’s the path of dying and rising.

The path may be a lonely one…but it’s the only path to becoming your true self.
