Ephesians 2:4-5a, 8-9 NIV 2011
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions…For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves it is a gift from God—not by works so that no one can boast.
God’s love is infinite. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Before Christ, all were dead in their sins. Ephesians 2:1, “As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins.” Faith in Christ saves sinners. Acts 15:11, “No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus, that we are saved…” God’s love gift of grace comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
It’s humbling to know I’ve been saved through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. God’s love was poured out on me the day I asked Jesus into my heart and has been since. Even when I chose to stray far away from Him, He never abandoned me. He gave me a million opportunities to return. His mercy is endless and He never fails to show up daily. My faith has grown and continues to grow through each new path we take. Thanking God for His gift of grace; Jesus Christ.
What makes us thankful for God’s grace gift?
