D.L. Moody once wrote, “Faith is the gift of God. So is the air, but you have to breathe it; so is bread, but you have to eat it; so is water, but you have to drink it.”
Salvation is the gift of God, but you must receive. As we find in Ephesians 2:8-9 and Romans 6:23, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
This Christmas, if you have not received this greatest gift ever, do not miss it. If you have already received it, pass it on to another.
