God cares about your day. We might think of “salvation” as God saving our souls for a future life in heaven, but there’s so much more to the story: He cares about what is happening to our soul today.
When He saves us and moves us to His Kingdom, His “salvation package” includes boundless gifts of heaven for our lives today. Peter wrote that we should crave spiritual nourishment so we can live the “full experience” of our salvation (1 Peter 2:2).
I’ve had the privilege of working with a group of writers who created a 40-day devotional on some of those gifts of salvation. We know that the wonderful things God has for us are “too numerous to list (Ps. 40:5),” but these writers have made a start, sharing some of the ways His salvation changes their lives.
In the Scriptures, the number 40 has transformative significance. Rain for 40 days and nights changed the world. Moses lived in the wilderness 40 years as God prepared him for a huge assignment. Jesus, after a 40-day testing in the wilderness returned to begin His ministry “filled with the Holy Spirit’s power.”
Our prayer is that 40 days of meditating on these gifts of salvation will change us, too, and help us all live more fully in the boundless blessings.
Boundless: 40 Devotionals on Living the Gift is available on Amazon. The paperback booklet includes additional Scriptures for further study and space to journal your own thoughts and prayers. An ebook is also available.
