God’s Grace

Ephesians 2:8-10 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

We can memorize the entire Bible and not be saved for eternal life and forgiven for our sin.  We can go to church every time the doors are open, be a leader or pastor in church and still not be saved.  We can do all manner of what is considered to be good and not be saved.  The only way to be saved is by the grace of God.  The way to receive that grace is to ask God for forgiveness and accept His Son, Jesus, into our hearts, minds and lives as the Lord, the ruler of our entire being.  When we accept Him and choose to follow Jesus in obedience to what is recorded in His written word, The Holy Bible, God gives us His grace of forgiveness and adopts us as His children.  He fills us with His love and His Holy Spirit Who enables us to love God.  When we love someone we want to please them.  To please God we walk in obedience to His statutes.  When we fall, we ask forgiveness and choose to move on from that falling and walk on.  We bear the consequences of our actions or inactions in our physical bodies but we also enjoy the forgiveness of God and the knowledge that nothing can separate us from His love once we receive it through His Son, Jesus.  Let us praise and thank God today for the gift of His grace the choose to show Him our love through obedience by allowing His Holy Spirit to love and help others through us.
