The Gift of Grace

Ephesians 2:8-9 states, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." We cannot save ourselves. Without Jesus Christ there is nothing we could do to return to live with our Father in Heaven.

Like the scripture says, salvation is a gift from God. And just like any gift we receive, in order to use it, we first have to open it. So how do we go about opening this gift of grace?

2 Samuel 22:21 reads, " The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me." In Hebrews 11 we read of many miracles that were wrought by faith and in James chapter 2 we are taught that faith without works is dead.

In order for us to partake of the mercy of God He has asked us to have faith in Him and to keep His commandments. Doing so will allow us to open up God's gift of grace for us.
