For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 1 Corinthians 15:22 HCSB
Through the introduction of sin into the world through Adam; we were all cursed with death. Through the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have the eternal and cleansing gift of Salvation; we have the gift of eternal life.
Salvation is not something we can buy because we are good, or sing the right hymns, or say pretty prayers, or go to church every Sunday, or even donate to a charity; the gift of Salvation is a gift that was bought with the blood and suffering of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus of Nazareth; the gift of Salvation cannot be bought with works, works come because of the acceptance of the Gift.
The gift of Salvation was given to us by Jesus Christ when He was on the cross, dying for you and I; all He asks for in exchange is that we believe in Him, that we follow His commands, that we profess without hesitation who He is and what He has done for us.
We must have faith; faith that God is in control of all things, all the time. We must not waiver in our faith, we must not let the devil get a foothold into our lives; we must always remain vigilant against the forces of the dark.
We must always remember the price Jesus paid for us; we must remember and honor His Gift of LOVE.
