Wyatt and I just returned from Plano, TX, where we attended the Grace Evangelical Society Conference. Oh my heart is so full!
I’ve been a believer in Jesus Christ for 51 years now, and this week a new concept sunk deep down into my soul. Why did I not process this before? I’ve always known that salvation was a free gift of God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by faith. I’ve shared the gospel with people, led them to faith, and studied the Word of God diligently. Yet, this week, I had an amazing AHA moment.
THE SIN OF EVERY PERSON IN THE WHOLE WORLD HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID FOR. 1 John 2:2 says this: “And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.” You know what this means don’t you? That salvation is offered to ALL PEOPLE. All an individual must do, is believe. It’s that easy.
Jesus died on the cross to pay for the sin of mankind. He rose again from the dead. He is alive and invites us to become a new creation in Him. We just have to believe. If this sounds too easy, then let’s look at another verse. Acts 16:31 says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved.”
I believe You, Lord. Thank you for saving my soul and for the gift of eternal life. Now please show me how best to serve You with every ounce of strength You give to me.
