Today's Good News


June 18                       Jonah 2:9

9 But I will offer sacrifices to you with songs of praise, and I will fulfill all my vows. For my salvation comes from the LORD alone.” 


I can contribute exactly nothing to my salvation.  It is by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, my acceptance and belief in the work he has done.  Do I realize that my sin is huge?  My debt is huge?  Only in the work that Jesus did, paying my price on the Cross do I have salvation. Like Paul I recognize that I am the worst of sinners.  Oh, we try to dress it up and get recognized for this or that but the truth is that without Jesus I am simply a poor wretched sinner.  Praise the Lord for His great salvation.
