For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
If you think you’re going to get to Heaven by your good works, I guarantee you’ll always wonder if you’ve done enough. You won’t have a “know-so” salvation. You’ll have a “hope-so” salvation. Rather than standing up straight in confidence like an exclamation point, you’ll be bent over and wondering like a question mark. That is, until you understand that it’s all by grace.
Suppose everybody who wanted to be saved had to run around the block. Some can’t run. What if you had to read a chapter in the Bible to be saved? Some can’t read. But there is one thing that can make the promise sure, and that is grace.
Who can you share this Good News with today? Think of at least one person, and ask God to give you a bold love and a divine opportunity to do just that. We also invite you to read “You Can Be Sure” for more insight on your eternal security as a believer.
