All gifts come from God

Romans 2:23 and the Gift of Salvation

If I forget my wife’s birthday, or our anniversary, or forget to get her a gift on Christmas I’m in trouble.  These are not gifts, these are obligations!  The Bible uses the word “gift” when there is no demand to give.  Under no requirement God offers us the free gift of eternal life.  Since it is a gift, we cannot pay for it.  The price has already been fully paid.  All we can do is say, “thank you, Lord for this gift of salvation.”  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.  This is Dr. Jay Quine encouraging you to take the free “gift” of eternal life that God offers you through faith in Jesus Christ.
