1 Salvation

Lord, let salvation spring up within my children, that they may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

Isaiah 45:8
You heavens above, rain down righteousness;
   let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
   let salvation spring up,
let righteousness grow with it;
   I, the LORD, have created it.

2 Timothy 2:10
Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

2 Timothy 3:15
and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

2 Tim 2:10 was one of the verses that just GRABBED me in my quiet time this morning. I was almost in tears as I had to stop and really think about what I would and would not be willing to endure for the sake of the elect. For some reason, I didn't put my children's names and faces in that list. I don't know why. It was some abstract concept of the elect. Seeing this verse repeated here and putting those three "babies" into the context only heightens the impact.

Amen.

Thanks for doing this. I may be a woman of few words/comments, but I will be following this month's posts.
