“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV).
Salvation is a gift and a miracle. It goes against the universal law of seedtime and harvest in Gen 8:22, and works on grace (getting what you don’t deserve). Humanity deserved eternal damnation, but in Jesus, God gave us eternal life.
Salvation is defined as material and temporal deliverance from danger and apprehension. It includes preservation, pardon, restoration, healing, wholeness and soundness. Hebrews 2:3 says we should not ignore this great salvation, and Hebrews 7:25 says God is able to save completely. So whatever situation you are going through will have a solution this year in Jesus name.
The greatest gift can only be from the greatest giver, and as children of God, we all have the nature of this great giver.
