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.
