The Gift of Salvation

The Gift of Salvation

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

For many, the giving of gifts is the dominant feature of Christmas. Believers are reminded of God’s amazing gift of salvation. He sent Jesus, so our sins can be forgiven. He offers His salvation for anyone, regardless of our age, income, personal history, or status in the world. This truly is a gift, offered whether or not we think we deserve it.

Paul knew that we could find it hard to understand the depth of this forgiveness. He wrote, “Most people would not be willing to die for an upright person.” But God is different! He “showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us.” And He did this “while we were still sinners” (Romans 5:7-8).

Christmas is a particularly appropriate time to remember this amazing gift and to accept all that God offers.

No matter what your background is or what you might have done, He offers you complete and total forgiveness. Because of the Gospel, you can be saved. Because of His love for you, you can have a deeper relationship with God Himself. You can have hope and peace, joy and victory, and confidence in your eternal destiny.

Today, accept the salvation that God has promised you. As He leads, be bold in sharing your faith. Do not be ashamed of the Gospel, but be ready to let others know about the best gift of salvation this Christmas season.
