Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For it was by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, nor of works, lest anyone should boast.” May we never lose the wonder of His amazing grace! How many times did you hear the gospel before you received Jesus? Most people hear the gospel many times before they receive the Lord. That is grace! He doesn’t give up on wooing us to Himself. We all know, He is the God of second chances; and oftentimes a thousand chances. Some of us were saved at an early age, while others were saved later in life. Whether you are 5 or 85, it takes the same amount of grace to deliver us from sin!
Some Christians struggle understanding they have been saved by grace, but they still want to pay Him back with good works. Know this, God’s love for us flows from His character, not ours; it is not dependent on anything we have done or will do. In fact, if you do nothing to serve Him the rest of your days, He will not love you any less. You can’t do anything to make Him love any more. And you can’t do anything to make Him love you any less!
Sin cannot destroy you relationship with God, but it can surly damage your testimony and your fellowship with Him. I am overwhelmed this morning with His amazing grace! God’s Riches At Christ Expense. Enter His throne of grace this morning. Nobody checks you out. You don’t have to stand in line. You don’t even have to make an appointment! Just come and enjoy the presence of you Heavenly Father who show us grace every day. God bless you and your family today!
