For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast. - Ephsians 2:8-9
This month's topic is grace, and how it is ours by birthright. It is God's greatest gift to us. I am SO GLAD that I don't have to work my way into the family of God, but that He is willing to pour out His grace on me!
I think this is the greatest appeal of Christianity - it's free for the taking. Nothing required to join - you just gotta believe Jesus died for you. Admit you need him; admit that on your own you do tend to mess up from time to time (i.e. sin) and you're in. It's that simple. It's that free. God loves us that much.
So I'm rejoicing!
