Ephesians 2:8-9

I am thankful for the gift of God’s grace

Throughout the Bible we learn in no uncertain terms that there is nothing we can do to earn salvation. Instead it comes only through the unmerited favor of God and the work of Jesus on the Cross. Such a simple message. But even the most devout Christian isn’t immune to struggling with it’s simplicity. Because in our fallen minds it seems too easy and too good to be true. And so we can find ourselves adding to the gospel. Falling into the wrong thinking that salvation comes both through faith, and….. There is no and. There is only grace. Such an awesome love our Father shows us in that we who are guilty of breaking His law and owing a debt of death, Himself laid down His own life in payment. That is God’s amazing, saving grace. A grace that frees us from bondage, one that is offered freely to all, for our good and His glory!
