There is much more

And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers (Deuteronomy 6:23).

The construction in our opening verse is about one word—"purpose." The reason for bringing them out was so He could bring them in! This is how He wants us to approach our salvation in Christ Jesus; He saved us (brought us out of sin), that He might bring us into our inheritance in Him; our place in Him. This mentality will make a huge difference in your life; it’ll completely change your destiny, and make it one of greatness only.

He didn’t just save us; He did it for a reason. The real message of Christianity isn’t just about the "saviour"—Jesus. Yes, He’s the Saviour, but He did much more than "saving us." If "saving us" was all He came to do, that wouldn’t be Christianity. Being saved was a means to an end. Now that you’re saved, welcome to a new world, but it’s much more than that. He saved us so He could bring us into oneness with Himself; our place of righteousness, glory, greatness, dominion, and excellence.

Notice again His purpose for bringing them out of Egypt: it was to give them the land which he swore to their fathers; the land of their inheritance, and make them great as He said to Abraham. God had said to Abraham, "I’ll make a great nation of your descendants, I’ll bless you, and I’ll make your reputation great, so that you will be a blessing" (Genesis 12:2 ISV). But they had become slaves in Egypt; that wasn’t greatness. He delivered them so that His purpose for their lives would be realized; so they’d become the great ones that He wanted them to be. As slaves, they couldn’t have the land; so He had to bring them into a place of liberty, to give them the land.

 Jesus brought us out of sin that we might inherit His righteousness. He brought us out of death, pain and penury, that we might have life in abundance, live in prosperity, health, and wellness every day on this earth. Now we can help those who don’t know Him to discover His light, learn about Him and receive His righteousness. That’s why we’re His witnesses. He saved us and made us His partners in saving others. So, you see now that there’s much more to our salvation in Christ.
Dear Father, I thank you for making me a representative of your heavenly kingdom here on earth. I make students of the nations, and I influence my world with the Gospel, saving the lost, and establishing your peace, righteousness, love, joy, health and prosperity in the lives of men, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

If you have not accepted Christ Jesus Into your life, you would like to help you today by praying this prayer.

Dear Jesus, I need You in my life. I acknowledge that I have sinned and I come to You right now confessing that and asking your forgiveness. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe You are the Son of God and that God rose you from the dead for my Justification.
I open the door of my heart and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Please take control of my life from here forward and make me the kind of person you want me to be. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
