Saved By Grace (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Today’s scripture: Ephesians 2:8-9 

So far this year, we’ve looked at verses about peace … and hope … and faith … and now, we’re going to spend a few weeks on another of my favorite words: Grace.

And we’re starting with one of my very favorite verses about grace.

Grace means “unmerited favor.”  It’s not getting what we do deserve.

What do we deserve? Death. Judgment. Eternal separation from God.

We are sinful, flawed, and unworthy. However, because of grace, God sees us as clean, flawless, and worthy.

All because of grace.

There is nothing we can do to be saved. No works. No efforts. No service. No penance.


Well, I take that back. There a few things we can do:

Accept the gift of grace. Surrender to Him. Live to bring glory to the Lord.
