So, I have been thinking about salvation and what it is and what it means and trying to sort through it, not to rationalize it with my human mind but to realize how much I need it. I have been thinking about how much we need salvation, and how much we do not realize we need it. To be more specific we have no idea we needed and sometimes do not know how much we need it still. God designed a perfect plan for salvation and has had it planned for a long time! Even in the old testament he was setting up for the arrival of Christ! With things such as the priestly order of melchizedek and prophecies given. It makes you realize that God knows what is best for us and his timing is perfect! He realizes what we need, when we have no clue that we need these things! God always makes it possible for us to get what we need, and I am so thankful for that! All we need is what God gives to us! Lets imagine for a second that we needed a perfect government full of honest politicians who knew exactly what was best for us or if we needed family and friends who never let us down, I believe that we would never get what we need! I encourage you, think about salvation, read what the Bible says about it. Know that you need it and that you are not able to receive anything else like it from anyone!
