WEDNESDAY'S WORDS ON THURSDAY

The wonderful thing about being a born again Christian is that not only is it free but everyone has equal access to  'being saved'.  You don't have to be rich, smart, famous, old, young, black, white, Chinese, Spanish, sinner, saint -- or whatever.  You don't have to speak a certain language or belong to any particular cultural entity. Salvation is free and available for anyone and everyone.  There are no requirements  or prerequisites . Anyone can become a Christian because it is a free gift from God for all who want it.  You can't have it if you don't want it.  No-one is going to force it upon you, though in the past, rulers have mistakenly tried to make it a requirement for their people. But it can't be done that way.  In your heart you personally must want God's forgiveness of your sin.  You will NOT be denied.

"For it is by grace that you are saved, through faith (in the Lord Jesus that he can truly give us this gift), not of works  (or anything that you have to do to earn it), it is the gift of God."  Ephesians 2:8

Amen! "For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

The best gift anyone can receive... and it's free. Love the level paying field for salvation... anyone, everyone, you, me.. etc.

Great Words Chris.
