Many of us like to feel we’re in complete control – that we’ve earnt everything we own through hard work. But God offers us something vital and life-changing that we simply can’t achieve on our own: Forgiveness for our sins. Salvation… Freedom from having to earn acceptance. This is his grace-soaked gift to us. Will we stretch out our hands in faith, receive it, and live our lives in gratitude?
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Ephesians 2 NIV
