Suspicious emails: unclaimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safe deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop up in our inboxes, and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply? Follow along as writer and comedian James Veitch narrates a hilarious, weeks-long exchange with a spammer who offered to cut him in on a hot deal.

Merry Christmas to all of my friends!

“Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” —Luke 2:11

"Moses sang, “He also hath become my salvation” (Exodus 15:2). David said, “The Lord is my light, and my salvation” (Psalm 27:1), and Isaiah exclaimed, “Behold, God is my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2). It is well to see salvation in the work, life, and death of Christ, but we must never forget that the essence of it lies in his person: he himself is salvation…
Everything about our Lord is saving, but he himself is salvation. His teaching, his example, his love, his tenderness, his sufferings, his glory—all help us; but it is his own glorious self which puts efficacy into them. Had he not been man he could not have died, and had he not been God his dying could not have availed for our redemption. It is what he is which gives virtue to what he does. We are bidden to come, not to his work, but to himself—“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden” (Matthew 11:28). To him we do come, and our heart can say, “He only is my rock and my salvation” (Psalm 62:6)."

—C. H. Spurgeon (1878). The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Sermons (Vol. 24, p. 315). London: Passmore & Alabaster.

"how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?" —Hebrews 2:3

"It's not as if he is saying, Don't neglect your arthritis. Or: Don't neglect your dandelions. Or: Don't neglect your spinach. He is saying don't neglect your salvation. Your great salvation. So it's as if he said, Don't neglect your steak dinners. Don't neglect your cancer-healing therapy. Don't neglect your sunrises and sunsets. And don't neglect your Butterfinger Blizzards or your new baby's smile, or your Rocky Mountains, or your Boundary Waters' breezes under the full night sky, or your safe warm bed. It's like that.

Only what is it really—this great salvation? What he's really saying is: Don't neglect being loved by God. Don't neglect being forgiven and accepted and protected and strengthened and guided by Almighty God. Don't neglect the sacrifice of Christ's life on the cross. Don't neglect the free gift of righteousness imputed by faith. Don't neglect the removal of God's wrath and the reconciled smile of God. Don't neglect the indwelling Holy Spirit and the fellowship and friendship of the living Christ. Don't neglect the radiance of God's glory in the face of Jesus. Don't neglect the free access to the throne of grace. Don't neglect the inexhaustible treasure of God's promises. This is a great salvation. Neglecting it is very evil. Don't neglect so great a salvation.

Because if you do, you will perish without escape. So being a Christian is a very serious business—not a sour business, but a serious business. We are simply blood-earnest about being happy in our great salvation. We will not be deflected by this world into the fleeting and suicidal pleasures of sin. We will not neglect our eternal joy in God—which is what salvation is."

—John Piper, Spoken, Confirmed, Witnessed: A Great Salvation

The message of our great salvation has been confirmed by a cluster of reliable witnesses.
