For by grace you have been saved

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV

Salvation is a gift from God unto us.  It is not something we earn and it is not something we work for.  It comes as a result of placing our faith in Jesus.  This doesn’t mean that we simply know information about Jesus, it means that we actually come to know Jesus.  The greatest thing about Christianity is that everything we have is simply a result of God’s grace and His mercy.

The religions of the world which are simply lies and deceptions of Satan are all based upon the efforts of human beings to somehow save themselves.  We are incapable of saving our selves because we are eternally lost and morally bankrupt.  This is why God Himself had to come down to save us by fully becoming man, facing every temptation we will face, living a life without sin, and giving His life as the perfect sacrifice.  Let us daily draw near and simply pray and ask the Holy Spirit that we would come to know and understand all we have in Christ.  Fix your eyes upon Jesus alone.
