Grace    

Ephesians 2 8

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 2:8

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith; and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Salvation is a gift graciously given from God because of His great and eternal love for us. You cannot buy it, earn it, work for it or get it based on your own abilities. It is the free, undeserved goodness and favor of God and it is a gift you can only receive by faith. Through God’s plan and His covenant of grace, Jesus paid for this gift when He died on the cross for our sins. As believers, everything we have, everything we are and everything we do is all because of God’s saving, forgiving and redeeming grace that blesses us all.

Live for Jesus

Romans 6 23

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

We were born into a world of sin but because Jesus gave His life to pay for our sins we have been offered the gift of salvation and eternal life.  Thank God for loving us so much that He gave his Only Son so that we could be saved and now because He died for us we should live our lives for Him. How do we live for Jesus?  Jesus said, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. (Mark 12:30).

A soul on fire for Jesus is a heart that has moved from knowing who God is to having a personal relationship with God.  It’s a soul that’s passionate about sharing the Word of God and the love of God with hurting people.  Be sure to keep your flame fanned by using the gifts God has given you to help bring salvation and hope to the lost.

The Gift of Eternal Life

 

1 12-11 1 Romans 6 23

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Spiritual death and separation from God is the price we pay for sin.  But because of God’s love for humanity He sent His only Son to pay the price that set us free. Eternal life is given by the grace of God through faith in Jesus, not by our own efforts or works so that no one will ever be able to boast that he earned or deserved eternal life, it is a free gift of God.
