Grace Alone

Eph 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.

 

We are saved by the grace and mercy of God through His Son, Jesus.  Nothing we can do can save us.  We can never be good enough.  We can’t buy or earn our way to heaven and eternal life.  We must accept God’s Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior.  When we allow Him to enter our heart, when we learn to love Him, our actions will reflect our love for Him.  First comes our commitment to Him.  Actions will gradually follow. Our words are meaningless if we don’t have the love in God in our hearts.  Grace is given to the undeserving.  We are undeserving.  Ours is to receive His grace and allow His Holy Spirit to work within our hearts and minds.
