While doing international business, there are times you must deliver goods before they are paid for. Because of the time wasted in shipments and the risk of failing to deliver the good, international companies many times don’t pay upfront but issue a bank guarantee letter. This is a letter written by the bank spelling out all the conditions in the contract and giving the supplier the guarantee that once those conditions are met, the payment would be made. After the goods have been delivered and the terms met, you simply cash in your bank guarantee letter.
Jesus our awesome possession is a guarantee of the eternal life we have in Him. First of all, He is guaranteed among us. There is nothing temporal or conditional about His grace and love for you. You can count on Jesus at all times in all times through all times. Everything about Him is guaranteed. You are rest assured that the love of God in Christ Jesus is unconditional and guaranteed. Jesus our guarantee also guarantees all eternity for us. Love life is not about chance and happenstance. In Jesus you have a guarantee from the father.
SCRIPTURE READING: Romans 8:31-39 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: ” For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, teach me to percieve you as my guareented possession in Jesus’ name.
