Ephesians 2:8 A Free Gift- I Love Grace

Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

The grace of God frees us from sin, the law, its curse and condemnation. Grace frees us from eternal death, and from the wrath of God at judgment. By grace we receive all the blessings of God, and we are found righteous in the eyes of God by Christ Jesus. By grace we have redemption, justification, pardon, adoption, salvation, validation, forgiveness, regeneration, and eternal life. We are saved by the grace provided by Christ’s sacrifice on Calvary-He who exercised the plan of salvation, appointed it to all mankind, and made a covenant with us in His blood.

Grace is the free gift of God to all who will receive it.  Salvation lies entirely in us receiving grace and gives all the glory to God. We must always be reminded that salvation is not of ourselves. We do not deserve it, but we have it. We cannot earn it, but it is freely given as a gift. Grace is a new life in our souls. When we are regenerated by the blood of Christ we become a living soul-we are born of God. In grace we live-we are delivered from the guilt of sin by pardoning and justifying grace.

In grace we are exactly where God wants us to be with all the time in this world and in the next, and to shower His kindness and blessings upon us. Grace is all God’s idea, and it is all his work. All we have to do is trust Him and let Him save us. Grace is God’s gift from start to finish! We did not make ourselves, nor can we save ourselves. Only God does both the creating and the saving. I thank God for the grace He so freely gives. I LOVE GRACE.
