Peace and grace from the Father and our LORD Jesus Christ, Some of us truly believe in our hearts that salvation is by our works and not by grace. The Bible is extremely clear about this subject concerning our salvation, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, ,” not of works”, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
This sweet grace that we enjoy is a “gift of God”, and it is not attained by your good deeds at all. Grace is not your effort, but grace is a person and this person is Jesus. “For the grace of God that brings salvation has “appeared” to all men” (Titus 2:11)
Titus tells us that grace has “Appeared to all men”, and the Apostle John also speaks to this truth vividly he says, “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth “CAME” through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17)
Our LORD Jesus came in the flesh and has firmly secured our salvation. Let us never forget that while we cannot be saved by works, we are sanctified or set apart for good works, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus “unto good works”, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
I want us to grasp this Truth, our Father which is in heaven has provided access to Himself by your faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ, to Him be the glory forever Amen. Now this is love, Thank you Father.
