Saved and free

In Colossians 1 there are two great verses that say a lot about our salvation.

Colossians 1:13-14 NLT says, “For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, [14] who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.”

In these verses we see five truths…

  1. Our salvation was the Father’s idea.
  2. The Father set our salvation in process by sending His Son.
  3. We are now in the Kingdom of God.
  4. Jesus purchased our freedom from sin and death at the cross.
  5. Our sins are forgiven.


Dear Father,  thankyou for sending Your Son Jesus to die on the cross for my sin. I thankyou that I am saved and free and that I am now part of Your eternal Kingdom. Help me to follow Jesus and live my life according to Your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
