Topic: GRACE AND FAITH
Text: Ephesians 2:8-9KJV
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast
Grace is defined as unmerited favour, that is a kind of favour that one does not deserve or qualified to receive, it is favour that one did not work or labour for. In a simple local interpretation, grace is a goodness that is given to one freely.
There are different purposes for which one can receive grace but in this devotional we are considering the Grace for Salvation. Our text above states clearly that salvation is by grace and we can deduce the following points about salvation from our scriptural text:
* “Not of yourself”-
meaning no man can save himself, but God alone.
* “It is gift of God”-
a gift absolutely free from God to man, you can’t buy it.
* ” Not of works”- You don’t work or labour to receive it.
Now the main point of emphasis is in Titus 2:11 which says “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men”. The salvation of God is for all men,
the grace for salvation is given to all men and it means everyone can be saved, in fact God wants everyone to be saved, He is not interested in the death of any sinner but that all comes to repentance. God’s grace for salvation that appears to all men is Jesus Christ.
Beloved, you have the grace to be saved from sin, it does not matter who, what or where you are presently, it does not matter your sins or the evil you have done, the grace for salvation can swallow them all. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says if you are in Christ, you are a new creature, old things (sins e.t.c) are passed away, all things will become new. Accept Jesus Christ today and be saved. God bless you.
* Father, I receive your grace for salvation today, Jesus come and save me now in Jesus Name.
* If you have been saved pray like this; grace to stand and remain in salvation I receive Lord.
