Something to Think About:
The Free Gift
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ. 1 Peter 1:18-19a (NIV)
One of the difficult things for Christians to realize is that there is no inherent merit or worthiness in us—none. Even Paul, possibly the greatest of Christ’s disciples, said, “For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do . For I know that nothing good lives in me” (Romans 7:15,18). We are human and sinners, one and all, just as our ancestors were.
How wonderful it is, then, when we accept and acknowledge the sacrifice that Christ made for us in the shedding of his precious blood! We know that salvation cannot be purchased with silver or gold, or with any efforts or works of our own. It is a free gift, made available only through the mercy and grace of God. All we need to do is accept it. “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief” (Mark 9:24).                                     James J. Frankenfield
Lord, open our hearts and minds to the understanding that salvation is a free gift. Through your Holy Spirit may we be led to accept it, and offer you our lives in gratitude and praise daily for it. In Jesus’ we pray. Amen
