One of my favorite passages of Scripture is found in Romans 12. It’s a beautiful, rich description of what our new life as believers can look like if we devote ourselves to God, as we should due to the immense gift of salvation He provided us.
Chapter 12 kicks off a section of practical wisdom giving us insight into how to apply what we believe. God’s free gift of grace should fuel us with the desire to live a more God-centered life than we were living before God intervened in our journey. Belief without application is really not aligned with God. Love, after all, is both a noun and a verb. From Paul’s teaching, we can clearly see that salvation is a free gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ. That free gift should radically change how we live our lives.
How has God’s gift of salvation changed how you live?
What is different about your life in Christ today from the day you first received God’s gift of salvation?
Have you experienced God’s free gift of salvation by trusting in Jesus?
God, we are immensely grateful for the gift of salvation You made possible through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ and sustain in us through the Holy Spirit. May we live lives transformed by Your grace and mercy. In Jesus’ name, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
May the Lord shower You with His grace and mercy.
