A gift of God. During this holiday season it’s easy to forget that salvation is a gift. It’s so easy so say: “I deserve heaven” and have a heart of coal.
Let us not forget who laid down his life for you. Salvation, going to heaven is not a mere – “I’m going because I’m a good person”. Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV) says “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Sorry.
It’s a gift that we need to ask from God and He will give it to us freely. Why? Because He loves us. With a deep everlasting love.
