Friday 11.2.12

Do you ever wonder why God loves us so much?  I don’t think we really have an understanding of the depth of His love.  There is nothing we can do or say that will give us salvation.  Salvation is only by God’s grace.  He loved us so much that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: nott of works, lest any man should boast.  For we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordanined that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:8-10

  1. Just had a similar conversation Wednesday about humility. Humility before God. Humility in our lives. I love the verse, as it says, “it is a gift of God, not of works.” Even in our righteousness and our good works it is not us that did the work. It is not us that saved ourselves. It was the gift God gave us. It was His calling and drawing us that saved our souls. Pretty neat stuff if you ask me.
