2/19 Prayer

Ephesians 2:8-9 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift-not from works, so that no one can boast.

Paul is simply saying that grace is a gift from God. No matter the works we do here on earth it does not guarantee us salvation. In our human minds we would want to boast about all the things we have done and this is why God has saved us. It is because of faith in Jesus Christ, God has given us the gift of grace.  We don't deserve God's grace because of our sinful nature.  This shows us just how much God love's us!  God should always get the glory for what he does in and through our lives.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. We often need reminders of God's grace and mercy. Sometimes the struggle for perfection makes us forget that what is available.
