"Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due." ESV
Our God loves us so much He gave the most precious gift, salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. We cannot receive a gift by working for it. If we work for it, it is not a gift, but something we earned. We can only receive His gift by recognizing our need for it, repenting, and accepting it.
Lord, help us to remember that we are no longer held responsible for our sinful nature. It's not because of anything we did to earn it, but Your great love and mercy is the gift You gave. In Your name we pray, Amen.
