(Out Of Satan’s Domain, And Born Into God’s Kingdom)

TO THE BIBLE: Colossians 1:12-13
“Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.”

When you’re born again, something amazing happens: You’re moved from Satan’s realm of darkness into God’s Kingdom. It’s the domain of life, light, and great glory. Satan has no claims over you or anything that has to do with you because you’re not in his jurisdiction.

You were called out of Satan’s domain into God’s marvellous light: “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

Those who aren’t born again, however, are by nature in bondage to Satan, buffeted by the adversities and terrors of life, unable to free themselves.

They’re in gross darkness, with no hope of ever coming out, because they’re living without God. Their only hope is to receive salvation in Christ Jesus.

This should immediately get you thinking about your family members, friends, classmates, and neighbours who haven’t yet known the Lord.

You’re God’s vessel to bring them into salvation in Christ, to bring them out of darkness and the domain of Satan into the light and glorious liberty of the sons of God.

2 Corinthians 5:19 says, “That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”

No human being can save himself; we couldn’t have done it by ourselves, and that’s why Jesus came.

Through His vicarious death, salvation became possible, and through His glorious resurrection, eternal life was made available. It’s what makes us superior to Satan and above the elements of this present world of darkness: we have eternal life—the God-nature! Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you for the benefits of salvation and the life of righteousness that you’ve brought me into by virtue of the vicarious sacrifice of Christ and His glorious resurrection. I walk in the reality of my new life in Christ, fully aware that I’ve been justified by faith and I have peace with you through the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
