Breaktime: Salvation

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!  When God restores his people, let Jacob rejoice, and Israel be glad! Psalm 53:6

What a glorious day, when salvation enters the heart of unbelievers. How amazing when the clutches of the enemy are released, and grace awakens the soul.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4,5

We can’t save ourselves even though many people may try. We can’t attend enough church services or read enough of the Bible to be saved, because salvation is the work of God. When we are dead in sin, we are numb to God, and through His grace, we are made alive.  It is all because of His great love, not by our works, for it isn’t what we do that makes us saved, but it’s by grace alone.

For some, receiving salvation by grace becomes difficult because they think there is something we must do to deserve His grace. We must have to pay it back or work at receiving. The gift of salvation is precisely that, a gift to be unwrapped and lived in every day. Do we deserve it? No, but that is what grace does, it reveals all Christ has for us, and we receive His gift by faith.  By God’s grace, we are made alive.
