Salvation is a gift from God. It is not based on what we do. In fact, we could never possibly do enough to erase our sins and "earn" our way to Heaven. It is because of God's love, mercy, and grace. None of us "earned" our salvation and none of us have the right to pride or to brag about what we have done to "earn" this. It was a gift--pure and simple. We should be thankful for the gift and recognize the Giver, not think we earned it by what we do. In verse 7, the Voice says, "He did this for a reason: so that for all eternity we will stand as a living testimony to the incredible riches of His grace and kindness that He freely gives us by uniting us with Jesus the Anointed." It should be our response to this gift to point others toward the Giver and tell them about the gift that is available to all.
What do you think our response to the gift should be?
