Unclaimed Riches

March 15, 2012

John Allan

One headline put it this way: “Call Center Helps Residents Find Unclaimed Money” with the subtitle “Thousands of Mississippians Have Money Waiting for Them.”

When word of this started getting out, lots of people were looking into it, and it is easy to understand why. The possibility of getting something valuable that they did not realize could be theirs was appealing.

One Mississippian even learned he had more than $112,000 waiting for him! If you had $112,000 dollars waiting for you, would you take it? What if there was something far more valuable available to you?

There is something far more valuable than $112,000. It is salvation, and it is available.

Salvation is Available

It was made possible by Jesus Christ

It is only found in Christ.

It is available to all.

 

Salvation is Attainable

It is a gift from God and cannot be earned (Romans 6:23).

We do, however, have to take possession of the gift.

When one becomes a Christian he must also live a life of faithful service to the Lord (1 John 1:8, Revelation 2:10, 1 John 1:5-10).
