"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." - Ephesians 2:8-9
Grace is a foundational aspect of the Christian faith. It is through God's grace that we have been saved, not by our own efforts or good deeds. This truth reminds us that our salvation is a gift—a gift we do not deserve but one that God freely offers to all who believe in Him.
Sometimes we may struggle with feelings of unworthiness or the temptation to rely on our own achievements. However, God's grace is not based on our performance but on His love and mercy. It is a reminder that salvation is a free gift, available to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ.
Today, reflect on the depth of God's grace in your life. Recognize that you are saved by His grace alone and not by your own works. Embrace this gift with humility and gratitude. Let God's grace transform your heart, and extend that same grace to others, showing love and forgiveness.
Gracious Father, I am humbled by the depth of Your grace. Thank You for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Help me to fully embrace Your grace and live in the freedom it brings. Teach me to extend grace and forgiveness to others as You have done for me.
In Jesus' name, I pray.
