Salvation is FREE for the TAKING

Jesus Paid it All, But He Didn't Do It All

It has been often said, that the best things in life are free. This is never more true when it comes to our salvation, because Jesus paid it all. He paid it all, but he didn’t do it all. God truly gave his only begotten son, (Jn 3:16) and Jesus died on the cruel cross of Calvary, (Lk 23:33) but for us to claim our salvation we must do our part. (Acts 2:37,40) We must believe with our heart, and confess with our mouth that Jesus is the Christ the son of God, (Rom 10:9,10; Jn 20:31) and repent of our sins, and be baptized into Christ. (Acts 2:38, Rom 6:3,4; Gal 3:27), and remain faithful until death (Jn 8:31; Rev 2:10) Jesus died that we might live, (Jn 10:10; 1 Jn 4:9) and paid the cost for our sins,  (1 Cor 6:20; Acts 20:28) which gives us the victory over death. (1 Cor 15:57) Behold, now is the accepted time, and now is the day of salvation, for truly, salvation is free for the taking! (1 Cor 6:2; Rom 3:24)
