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
This was such a wonderful reminder. I needed to hear this today. Thank you!
I’m so glad Mackenzie! May your hands remain outstretched 🙂
One of the most important scriptures we could be reminded of today! Thank you for sharing your walk of faith!
I’m glad, thanks Rick!
One of my favourite truths of God’s Word 🙂
It’s a pretty amazing truth isn’t it? Thanks for dropping by, and hope you are well 🙂
I am doing well, thank you!
This is awesome. I totally love this! 😀
Thank you Sherline! God bless you as you accept his grace 🙂
Keeping the illusion of control makes sense… God loving us so much he saved us through the sacrifice of His son is harder to wrap my mind around. But God’s grace is amazing
I thought I commented but it doesn’t look like it saved. I find it’s easier to think I’ve got it all under control rather than wrap my head around God sacrificing his son for me and loving me in spite of my sins. God’s grace is amazing.
