My son Knox is about to turn one and a favorite past time of his is to attempt to dive out of my arms as I am holding him. So on any given day I save his life about 15-20 times. Of course he is totally unaware of this and he somehow trusts me and knows that I wont drop him. I do not see the need to communicate to him what is going on because I don’t think he would understand. However, when he does begin to get older and he does things that are careless I will expect for him to understand what is going on and for him to be grateful to others for their kindness.
We often take Jesus for granted in our daily lives for the kindness he has shown us and for the mercy and forgiveness he has purchased for us. We complain about things that we do not have forgetting that we have been given everything in Christ. We may be angry about how someone has wronged us forgetting how much we have been forgiven. Last week we looked at God as our creator and this week we will look at God as our redeemer. As you come to worship this Sunday consider the ways that you may be taking Christ for granted and in what areas you can repent and turn to him in admiration and thanksgiving for the wonderful salvation he purchased for you on the cross.
