SALVATION FOR WHOM?
Some have lived a life of sin—sexual relations with others rather than their spouses, children out of wedlock, divorcing each other negating marriage vows, taking what doesn’t belong to them, destroying their bodies with alcohol and drugs…there’s no end to the corruption we are suffocating in.
For why did Christ come? For whom did He come to save? With guilt and shame piling up until we are weighted down sucking dust.
What did Jesus mean, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28,29.
How can this happen when I’m such a wretched soul? “But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:1,2 (See also John 3:16.)
Is there anything greater than God’s love for sinners? Repent and believe! Salvation is yours!
PONDER Ephesians 2:8,9 “For it by grace that you are saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”
