TODAY’S SCRIPTURE VERSE:

Ephesians 2:8,9

“For by grace [God’s unmerited love and favor] you have been saved through faith in His Son Jesus the Messiah. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Salvation is not a reward for good things we have done, so that none of us can ever boast about it. ” – Ephesians 2:8-9 (JCV)

     How are we to understand that faith and salvation is by grace – a gift from God? When we are brought into the state of salvation, our sins are all blotted out, and we are made partakers of the Holy Spirit. It is all a gift from God and we must not attribute this to any deserving works or merit on our parts. For when the Good News Gospel of Jesus Christ reached us, we were all spiritually dead in our trespasses and sins. Therefore it was God’s free mercy to us, manifested through Christ Jesus in whom we believed; and, having believed by the power of the Holy Spirit, we received and were sealed by the Holy Spirit.
