On Being A Christian

Let us focus on our particular situation: Psalm 62:7 says "In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God."


What we should hear from this passage is that each believer can find peace and comfort, even when we don't think so -- we are prone to illusions (People are so good at finding things that we can even find them when they are not there.) So let's focus on the truth. God gives us the strength we need.(Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.") Through Jesus, we have righteousness, and no condemnation for sin. We have to invite Jesus into our lives, for he will not force us: but when we rely on him, he is all we need. Jesus died for us, and he accepts us when we accept his gift, and he understands us better than we understand ourselves. He is the father of the prodigal son, running to meet us with arms open wide.


We will never be alone, for he is with us. We have nowhere we need to go, because he is with us, always. He is there for us. He loves us. Even when we hate ourselves, he loves us. Even when we're so full of ourselves we're a balloon, he loves us, and he died for us.


He is our refuge. His arms are around us. He gives us what we need, and will remake us into a glorious creature of the new Jerusalem (Philippians 2:13 "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.")


So say it: "In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God." This is our cry when we need help, knowing that he gives it when we ask, and our shout of triumph when we do right.


Say it one more time, slowly: "In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.” Both in our need and our triumph, this is our cry.
