“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
Our salvation is simply a gift. We are saved by faith in Jesus Christ. We are called to walk in humility and grow in Christ on a daily basis. When we understand all we have in Christ is a gift then we understand that no one can take that gift from us. The Lord has called us to abid in Him on a daily basis. It is His grace alone that holds us close and it is Because of His grace that we have victory. Many struggle because they simply don’t understand what they have in Christ. When we understand everything we have from God is a gift and we understand our righteousness is a gift, we will simply desire to draw near with thanksgiving and simply enjoy the Lord’s presence. The battle has already been won and the enemy we face is already defeated.
