God’s Tremendous Grace

In review of Ephesians 2:8-9 it says, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”

Bottom Line:
God saves us through his grace when we believe, it is a gift from Him and not for anything we’ve done or could possibly do.

What this means to me:
God is so rich in his mercy that he has saved me through his grace when I first believed. It is a gift from him, there is nothing I did or could ever do to earn it.

Grace is unmerited favor. It is what God gives me, that I need, but don’t really deserve on my own merits. He offered and gave to me when I first believed. In essence God took a huge problem of mine and made it his problem. I got God’s riches at Christ’s expense. God is truly so rich in mercy and loved me so much that even though I was dead because of my sins, he gave me life when he raised Christ from the dead.

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NLT).

The second part of this verse reminds me that this grace or unmerited favor was not something I could earn or work my way in. It is simply just a gift.

Today, I thank you God for your tremendous grace that your pour upon me, not just when I first believed but every day thereafter. Your grace and mercy are new each day.
