I think most of us have seen the humorous Turbo Tax commercials that use nothing but the word “free” to emphasize that the use of their software costs nothing. The Bible has also clearly communicated to us that salvation is a free gift that has not and cannot be earned and yet that simple truth is so not understood and accepted.
Our goal this summer is to be just as clear with our campers that salvation is a free gift from God through faith in Jesus Christ. Not only is salvation offered to us freely, but by it, we are also set free. Free from the punishment for sin. Free from the captivity of sin. Free from shame and guilt. Free to be who God wants us to be. Ultimately, we are set free to serve others.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God”Ephesians 2:8
