Deliverance…

No! I am not talking about the movie.

Throughout the Old Testament we read of God’s deliverance of the children of Israel. We see the immeasurable patience and love of God in His deliverance. Israel’s continual rebellion led to their captivity. Inevitably, they would recognize their sin and cry to God for deliverance.

The ultimate deliverance was accomplished at the cross where Jesus took upon Himself what we deserved to receive. The result brought deliverance from our bondage to sin and its consequences.

God’s deliverance, through Christ, is identified as salvation, forgiveness, grace, and the indescribable gift.

It is the result of God’s immeasurable patience and love. Deliverance demonstrates the action provided by God as an example for us to follow.

Considering the lengths taken by God to provide for our greatest need raises a question. What are we willing to do in order to lead others to deliverance?

Our spiritual leadership is defined by it. The souls all around us depend on it. Think Souls!
