Rev. Ray's Daily Devotion

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God…” Ephesians 2:8

A hungry man asked a servant who was working a wealthy banquet, "Can I have some leftovers from the table?" "They are not mine to give," he said. Then another voice spoke, "But they are mine; all of this is mine, and you are welcome in this place. Come, be my honored guest at my table." We are only servants of salvation; there is only one who can give it away. He never gives leftovers, but Heaven’s best.

The simple truth is that we cannot give away what belongs to someone else. So, what is our role as Christians when it comes to salvation? It is not that hard to answer. Our part is to introduce others to the one to whom salvation belongs.

The Psalmist said, "Salvation belongs to the Lord." Friend, no other salvation will do. (Others may be able to help save us from a bad circumstance, but only Jesus can save us from a life of sin.) When sin had robbed David of his peace, he prayed to the Lord, "Restore to me the joy of your salvation."

I cannot give one ounce of salvation to anyone, but I know who can. This song says it best:

“Have you a heart that's weary
Tending a load of care?
Are you a soul that's seeking rest
From the burden you bear?

Do you know my Jesus?
Do you know my friend?
Have you heard he loves you;
And that he will abide till the end?”

Grace and Peace, Rev Ray
