Bible Reading: Ephesians 1-4

Scripture

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

Observation

We are saved by grace through faith. It is not our doing, but the gift of God. He created us. He allows us to be recreated—forgiven, adopted as His children, reconciled, and obediently following Him.

Application

The greatest Gift of all arrived in a most unusual way for a peculiar purpose—to die! These verses are so profound, reminding us that religion is spelled D-O and salvation is spelled D-O-N-E, it was done on the cross. We aren’t good enough. All we need do is receive the Gift…and become the masterpiece He created us to become.

Prayer

LORD, I remain in awe of Your grace. I don’t deserve it. I can’t earn it. I can’t lose it. Thank You!!! I want to do the good works You prepared for me to do, not to earn salvation, but to respond in love and obedience to You. I love You, LORD! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
