What is Salvation?

Longfellow could take a sheet of paper, write a poem on it and make it worth sixty thousand dollars. That is talent.

Rockefeller could sign a piece of paper and make it worth a million. That is capital.

Uncle Sam can take an ounce of gold and stamp an eagle on it and make it worth $40. That is money.

A mechanic can take material worth five dollars and make it into an article worth $50. That is skill.

A merchant can buy an article for 8o cents, put it on his counter and sell it for a dollar. That is business.

God can take a worthless sinful life, wash it, cleanse it, put His Holy Spirit within it – and make it a blessing to all humanity. That is salvation.
