Colossians 1:13

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. (NIV)

You Are Rescued

When we are young, we hear stories about princesses and the warriors who save them. Little girls want to be the princess whom the warrior defends. Little boys want to be the warrior who slays the dragon. Then we grow up. It becomes harder and harder to believe we are a princess worthy of defending or a warrior courageous enough to win the fight.
But you and I…we are royalty. We are the King’s kids. Yes, the world can be frightening and cruel. Yes, there will be hard days…that may turn into hard months…and even harder years. Some days will feel like a dream. Other days will seem to never end. But there is One who never leaves our side. He is our Victor. His name is Jesus. He is strong and mighty to save us. Whether we are a princess or a warrior…or maybe a warrior princess….we all need our Warrior Jesus to save us. And indeed He did!!
Colossians 1:13 tells us “for He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves.”
What does God say about you? You are rescued.
