Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb! —Revelation 7:10

A man fell through the ice into the water and could not get out. Every time he tried to get back on the ice it broke off and he could not get himself out. It did not look good. He would not survive long in the icy cold water. Fortunately for him another man was passing by and saw what was happening. This man had a rope in his truck and threw it to the man and pulled him out to safety. If it wasn’t for this man coming by at that exact moment the other man would have died. The man in the water could not save himself. It was the man in the passing truck that saved him.

Now it would be ludicrous for the saved man to say he saved himself. The only part he had was to hold on tight to the instrument of his salvation— the rope being pulled by the man on shore! So it is with us. We had nothing to do with our salvation except to cling to the “Instrument” of our salvation— the Son whom the Father was drawing us to— “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day” (John 6:44).

Dear Father, I rejoice in the salvation that You have given me through Your Son and for being kept by Your Holy Spirit. May my life be a reflection of gratitude for what You have done for me. May it be so!
