Points to Ponder
    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.”
