Better Safe Than Sorry

Today’s Verse:

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. ~Philippians 3:1

The word “safe” implies something free of harm, danger, and unnecessary risk. Embedded within all of us is a sense of preservation from endangerment. We take precautions, and try to always be aware of our surroundings. We are careful not to expose ourselves from bacteria that can make us sick. We are careful to invest our money where our exposure to risk is minimized. Paul writes to us that it is better to be safe than sorry.

We are safe when we are saved.

“And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” The most important thing for us to be is to be saved! “Saved” means that we are safe from condemnation to hell for our sins. “Saved” means that we have placed our entire faith and trust in Jesus’ death and resurrection for our salvation. There is no righteousness in any of us to be saved. Tru
