Discipleship Starts with a Conversation


Convo 2: “Grateful for Salvation”

Seek Him Speak Him The great Invitation
When I was a little girl, my parents and church leaders invited me to “give my heart to Jesus.” That was a simple way for a child to understand God’s gift of salvation, but, from there, salvation can be hard to explain. Sometimes it’s so “indescribable” that we don’t talk about it much. However, this week, let’s specifically focus on this gift as we continue in our “GIVE THANKS” series. ~ I encourage you to spend some time with the Lord and ponder this week’s Scripture. Read the coordinating passages and maybe look up a few extra Scripture references with the word “salvation.” As you seek the Lord about His gift of salvation, speak up about your salvation story. Talk to those entrusted to you about how grateful you are for salvation. You never know, this may be the week when someone you love decides to receive this gift, too, as they’re inspired by YOUR gratitude. ~ Listen my physical “salvation” story in this podcast or move right into the “Seek Him” section! ~ Be encouraged!

Seek Him!
Let’s meet with God and “Seek Him” through this Scripture!
As we continue in our “GIVE THANKS” series, this week we consider being grateful for God’s gracious gift of salvation. All the grace He has poured on you is part of your incredible “Jesus Story.” This week, spend time seeking God about His amazing grace in your life! 
God, what are you saying through this Scripture?
God has blessed our lives with so much, including an “indescribable” gift called grace. God offers His grace to us through salvation. We cannot save ourselves, but He can! He pours out His grace on us so that we can know Him and experience real relationship with Him. Words can hardly express how wonderful this is! ~ What is “salvation”? Do you find the answer to that question hard to explain? Try!
God, why does this matter?
Through salvation, God’s grace sets us free from the bondage of sin, makes our hearts new, gives us eternal life – – – and so much more! God’s gift of grace and salvation affects everything about our today and our eternity. ~ Have you experienced God’s grace? If you have, how has it impacted your life? Does it matter to you or could you live without it?
God, What else does your word say about this?
In Exodus 34:6, God described Himself saying, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” God combined all His amazing characteristics and showed them through His extraordinary gift of salvation. Godly people throughout the ages have praised Him for this. The saints in Revelation will sing, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God” (19:1b). ~ How can YOU praise God for His mercy, grace and salvation? 
God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?
Ephesians 2:8 tells us, “By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” We can respond to a gift, first by receiving it and then by being grateful for it! We want to accept God’s amazing gift of salvation and then worship Him with hearts full of gratitude and thankfulness for it. ~ Let’s do that right now!
Speak Him!
In discipleship we can make God known and “Speak Him” to others!
As we express our gratitude for God’s indescribable gift of salvation, we can worship Him even more by talking about His gift with others so they can experience it, too! Today, as you’re “grateful for salvation,” don’t just keep this gift to yourself! Tell someone else!
