UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People are constantly tossed about by the trials and tribulations of life. Where can they find safe haven? Paul told the Romans that through the love of God in Christ Jesus they would find a Savior from whose love they could never be separated and by whom they would be loved, protected, glorified, and delivered from all trials and tribulations.
We have that blessed assurance in life’s travails because we have accepted Jesus. We then get a taste of the glory to come with the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. We did not do anything to earn it, but we are saved from our sins. Jesus paid the debt we could not pay. We then accepted the gift of the Holy Spirit. That is why the last verse of “Blessed Assurance” (a great hymn of the church) summarizes how we ought to feel in God’s love:
“Perfect submission, all is at rest, I in my Savior am happy and blest; Watching and waiting, looking above, Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.”
Gracious God, we are thankful that you are with us in our trials and tribulations. You have brought us through so many adversities in our lives that we cannot recount them all. Instead, we just give you praise for your goodness and mercy. Your love for us is boundless. We continue to bask in the glow of your blessings. We offer this prayer of thanksgiving. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
