“I remember two things: that I am a great sinner and that Christ is a great Savior.”
–John Newton (1725–1807)
Salvation is free.
You don’t buy it. You cannot earn it.
Salvation is free, but it comes at a cost.
The Lord offers us salvation as the “gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). He showed us mercy, not giving us what we deserved for our sins, and showed us grace by offering what we did not deserve. Salvation is the ultimate gift of God to the world through His Son’s atoning sacrifice as the Lamb of God.
Let us truly believe and accept God’s gift with all thankfulness. Open your eyes to the riches and treasures of everlasting life offered through the sacrifice of the Savior. Let us who believe open mouths to speak freely about the freedom that we have gained through Christ just as we have opened our hearts to gain such freedom to live in Christ.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,
And gathered out of the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. -Psalm 107:2-3 (NKJV)
