Victories – In Our Minds

1 Peter 1:9 (NLT) “The reward for trusting Him will be the salvation of your souls”.

We express joy (1:8) because of our belief in and love for our Lord Jesus Christ. The reward for trusting Christ will be the deliverance or salvation of our souls. Believers receive salvation when they accept Jesus Christ as Savior, yet salvation will not be complete until Jesus Christ returns and makes everything new. In the meantime, we continue growing in the Christian life and experiencing more and more of the blessings of salvation. As we continue to believe and rejoice, we also continue to grow toward maturity in Christ and to our promised salvation.
