Salvation by Grace

By Betty Robison Published on June 12, 2015


“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)

One of the greatest aspects of our faith in Jesus Christ that we can come to understand is the importance of salvation by grace.

Growing up, I did all the religious things that I thought I needed to do. I was faithful in church attendance and by the book of the law I lived a very religious life.

I thought that if I didn’t, then God wouldn’t love me.

You need to know that salvation is a free gift. It can’t be earned by our good works — by doing noble or religious acts for God and others. There is no way we can earn God’s love and acceptance.

Open your heart to God’s gift of grace — it’s free!

Further Study: Ephesians 1:7; Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8-9

Take action: Declare today: Jesus, I receive Your freedom in my life. I receive Your grace and mercy. Fear has no place here. You are my security and my confidence. Your Word is life to my body, soul and spirit.
