Today's scripture: Ephesians 3:1-7
Anyone can receive the “gift of God’s grace.” Anyone. God doesn’t look at
gender, race, cultural background or socio-economic status. He doesn’t care if
you’re nine or ninety. He doesn’t restrict you because you’ve done shameful
All He wants is a repentant heart, a surrendered life.
Anyone who believes in God and accepts salvation through the death, burial, and
resurrection of Jesus Christ—God the Son—will be saved (Acts 2:21). Jesus is
the Giver of eternal life (John 3:16; 10:8-10).
You don’t have to work for it. You don’t have to hope your good outweighs your
bad. You don’t have to wonder if what you did in a past life has brought you
one step closer to heaven.
You just have to believe and receive.
I don’t know about you, but I’m so very grateful that God loves each and every
one of us. I’m grateful that He had a plan for my salvation—a Gentile,
middle-class American woman. He has the same plan for each one of us. What a
good God He is!
