"Grace Saves - Faith Receives"

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.  Ephesians 2:8

We are saved by grace, it is the gift of God.  We don't earn it.  We don't do anything to deserve it.  We don't merit it.  We can't buy it.  Salvation is strictly a gift from God.  He has already purchased this wonderful gift for us with the life of His One and Only Begotten Son Jesus. 

We receive it through faith.  Do you believe?  Do you believe that salvation comes only one way--through Jesus?  Do you believe that He did everything necessary to save you and give you eternal life?  Do you believe that there are not enough good works and deeds that you can do that will save you on your own?  Do you believe Jesus' shed blood at the cross was enough? 

Do you believe that this grace that saves you is greater that your sins?  Do you believe it is greater than all you did in the past and all you will do in the future?  Do you believe it is greater than all your mistakes, failures and sins?  Do you believe that God's grace can wash you clean from all unrighteousness?  Do you believe that by itself it is great enough to take care of your life?

Salvation is a gift given to us by God's grace.  But in order for us to enjoy this gift we have to receive it by faith.  You are saved by God's grace- you don't earn it.  And that grace is enough all by itself to save you.  Do you believe this?    

Have a great day.  Grace saves us.  Faith receives it.
