We love upgrading! Whether it's our phone, house, or car, we always want something newer or better. But what if we could be upgraded? This is exactly how God finishes the plan of salvation!

Parents love throwing birthday parties for their kids! And is there a better feeling than giving them the perfect present? God is the same way. He loves converting sinners and giving us the blessings of salvation.
