God’s Greatest Gift Is Salvation
Construction Zone 9: God's Gift - Salvation
What is "salvation"?
Salvation is the everlasting life and forgiveness that God gives freely to sinners who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Jonah 2:9b – Salvation is of the LORD.
This Truth Makes
Salvation is the best thing that could possibly happen to anyone! And it is a free gift of God. Ever since Jesus died on the cross, Satan has been telling lies and tricking people into thinking that there are good deeds they must do in order to deserve or earn salvation. But salvation is not earned; it is freely given by God.
Titus 3:5 – Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.
It is important to understand that salvation is totally God’s work, and we are only receivers (the ones who get to keep the gift). There is no good work that we can do to earn salvation. When God invites us to receive salvation by His grace through faith – we can each say “Yes, please!” and receive His wonderful gift.
