A GIFT FROM GOD
Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from ourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast.
Through his Son, Jesus, Father God gave us eternal life.
The scene: A gift from God–wrapped in blue paper and gold ribbon–the colors of royalty with purple background, around the gift representing the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
One God, one gift from God, Jesus. His people are one with him.
Ephesians 1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will–
God’s love is immutable–that is, not subject to change.
Romans 11:29 For God’s gifts and calling are irrevocable.
Everyone can claim their salvation through Jesus the Christ of Nazareth.
For those who have been saved, we have the opportunity to do His will, to give God praise and worship and help bring in his kingdom. Each saved person can tell other people, who want to hear it, their salvation story. And then be prepared to lead someone who is ready to the Lord and present them with the “sinner’s prayer”.
Romans 5:17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
