Unlimited: Christ’s Work in Me

Salvation is of the Lord (Jonah 2:9, NIV).

Salvation is the work of God. It is he alone who quickens the soul “dead in trespasses and sins,” and it is he also who maintains the soul in its spiritual life. He is both “Alpha and Omega.”

When I am prayerful, it is God who has made me prayerful; when I am blessed, it is God’s gift to me; when I do good deeds, it is because God is holding my hand. God cares for me and sustains me.

Any goodness in me comes from the Lord alone. My sin is my own; but when I act rightly, that is of God, wholly and completely. If I have beaten back a spiritual enemy, the Lord gave me the strength to do it. If I show an example of a Christian life, it is because of Christ, who lives in me.

God’s Holy Spirit sanctifies me, and helps me learn more about Jesus Christ.

God provides all my needs, both physical and spiritual. “He only is my rock and my salvation” (Psalm 62:2).

Jesus continually gives me strength to live the Christian life, because without him I would be too weak to follow him. Without Jesus I can do nothing. Jonah learned the lesson which we need to remember every day: “Salvation is of the Lord.”

– Charles Spurgeon (adapted)

Eli’s Reflection: How freeing it is to know that the free gift of salvation is from the hand of God. It is not of my effort. I do not achieve forgiveness or heaven. What does this truth make you think of how you received salvation?
