Experience Your Salvation

Christians often think of salvation as something God bestows on us by His grace.  For example, Paul tells the Thessalonian church, “God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  1 Thessalonians 5:9.  But what if salvation were not only received but also experienced, as we live life mindful of the blessings we have received from our all-loving, all-powerful Father?  Using the familiar passage from Matthew in which Jesus speaks of separating sheep from goats at the final judgment, Pastor Karen Witt preached this morning about salvation as not only a gift to be received with thankful hearts but also an experience that Christians can share with the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick and the imprisoned.  Karen’s wonderful, thought-provoking sermon is here.
