Faith

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast”

~Ephesians 2:8-9~ NIV

When someone gives you a gift do you say, That’s very nice – now how much do I owe you? No, the appropriate response to a gift is “Thank you”. Yet, how often Christians, even after they have given the gift of salvation, feel obligated to try to work their way to God.. Because our salvation and even our faith are gifts, we should respond with gratitude, praise and joy.

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh  the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith

Jesus never promised that obeying Him would be easy. But the hard work and self-discipline of serving Christ is no burden to those who love Him. And if our load starts to feel heavy, we can always trust Christ to help us bear it.

Too often, Father, I try to think my way through my problems rather than feeling my way. Open my heart so that I might know Your Love in the deepest way possible. Amen
