The day after Thanksgiving, my wife and I were driving to her parent’s house to enjoy a holiday meal with the family. On the way, we saw two different flocks of wild turkeys. It was as if they knew that they could come out in the open now. The danger was past—they had safely made it through another Thanksgiving!
We Christians know that we are safe from God’s wrath because we have put our faith in Jesus. Unlike the turkeys, however, our assurance does not come and go based on the calendar. We have the on-going certainty that we will not have to face punishment for our sins. Jesus took the punishment for us when he died on the cross.
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”—Romans 8:1.
