1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

"For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him."

2nd memory verse. Love these verses. I still need to meditate on this more and more. I need to better understand the wrath that we have been saved from by the death of Jesus. I don't fully understand that, and I think if I did really understand that wrath that I have escaped and that Jesus faced in my place, my life would look different. I would love Christ more. I would never ever complain. I would have a much greater urgency to share Christ with the world. And the thought of living together with him, whether awake or asleep would mean so much more. That is my prayer. That God would make it real to me. It's so easy to say it, but to really know it,  the way I know how gravity works, in a way that affects how I do everything, that is my desire.
