Rescued from Evil
Pastor Jim Balzano, June 12, 2016
Paul told the Galatians that Jesus gave himself for our sins to rescue us from this present evil age. The problem however, is that we still live in this present evil age so how did He rescue us? Is it a now thing or just a future thing? It’s both. Even though I live in an age where evil seems to be rampant, I am reduced from its power. Countless places in scripture show us God’s people being in a place of evil yet not under the power of that evil. Daniel, Joseph and numerous others show us what it looks like to be rescued from this evil age but not removed from this evil age.
