A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“…Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Calmly think of this
You see, none of us were born with a spiritual connection to God. Because of Adam’s rebellion, we were all dead in our sins and separated from the Lord (Eph. 2:1). No amount of personal effort is able to bring an individual to life spriritually. Although we are unable to change this condition for ourselves, nothing is impossible for God. “When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” (Matt. 19:25-26). By accepting Jesus’ sacrificial death as payment for our sins, we are forgiven, reconciled to Him, and made alive in our spirit (Eph. 2:5). This is the beginning step of the Christian life. Have you received Him as your Savior?
Salvation is a matter of God’s saving grace, not works.
