God’s Grace

Ephesians 2: 8-10

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 

God loves us.  God does not love us because of our good deeds.  Nothing we can do merits God’s love for us.  God loves us because God is love (1John 4: 8, 16).  

Grace is God’s loving action toward and for humans that does not depend upon merit or worthiness.  In this scripture we read that our salvation is a gift of God, given to us through God’s grace.

The gift of God’s grace is Jesus Christ whose sacrifice opened the door for us to salvation, and to a relationship with God. God offers the gift of salvation to anyone who believes.

No one deserves this gift.  And this does not matter to God.

May the love of Christ be with you

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
