He has rescued us from the power of darkness
and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Colossians 1, Verse 13-14
The power of evil and darkness has been present since before the creation of this world. But our loving Father had a plan all along for our rescue and our salvation. He willingly sent His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Savior. In the sacrifice that Christ made we were “transferred into the kingdom of His Beloved Son”. Through that sacrifice we have been redeemed and our sins have been forgiven.
But the evil power has not let up in his relentless pursuit of our souls. We need to be constantly vigilant. We need to be ever ready to turn the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to ask for their Divine intervention that we always remain “transferred into the kingdom”.
