The Bible speaks about so great salvation.
Hebrews 2:3 KJV
But why is salvation great? To begin to answer this question let me ask a question. What makes a book great? Or what makes a painting great, what gives it great value Surely it is, the author or the artist who gives depth great content and great beauty. Salvation was authored by God himself without anyone suggesting it to Him, it was and is His idea. He planned it in such depth and beauty, before even the foundation of the world. He alone is the author and artist of our eternal salvation. Salvation is so great because the author and artist of it is none other than God Himself.
There are many stories of famous art works being discovered and bought for a fraction of their real worth. One of my favourites is at an auction a small slightly damaged oil painting which expected to fetch around $500 to $800 at the auction. Experts recognised it and it turned out to be a long lost painting by Rembrandt the famous Dutch artist. It sold for over a million dollars. What made the difference? The bidding opened at only $250, the auctioneer commented that the painting was online for the whole world to see, yet in all the world only 3 people recognised its great value and beauty. Most dismissed it as a fake and missed the great prize. Once it was realised who the artist was the value shot up enormously.
The Gospel message is in every Bible yet so many don’t see it or realise its great value. So many just dismiss it. Yet what can compare to Gods master plan of redemption to rescue lost people out of the clutches of darkness and translate them into His glorious light. To make them children of the most High God.
The first reason Salvation is Great is because God is the Author and artist.
