Ephesians 2:8-9

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

  • No one will ever be good enough to earn their salvation. You are not saved when your good outweighs your bad. God’s grace is the only thing that enables us to be assured of eternal life. Jesus shed His blood on the cross because there was no other way. Jesus plus anything else does not equal salvation. Salvation is Jesus, only Jesus. Our heart for Christ and a life committed to Him is what produces the fruit in our lives. We must understand that He is the only way. There are a lot of people who do good things and have no relationship with Christ. All the good things they do will not earn them salvation. Without Jesus Christ in their life they are bound for hell when they pass from this life. We must never assume someone is saved because they are a “good person”. Ask them to tell you about their faith. If they know Christ, they will be glad to share their story with you. Their salvation is far more important than any discomfort you, or they, may feel.
  • We cannot do enough good to be saved and doing good will not keep us saved. The nicest, most giving person in the world is headed for Hell unless Jesus Christ becomes their Lord and Savior. God’s grace is our salvation when our faith is in Jesus Christ. Nothing we can do apart from Jesus will save us! Our salvation, growth and maturity as Christians does not come from our actions, it comes from our relationship with Jesus Christ. Good works through Jesus Christ reap great benefits but good works apart from Jesus reap no rewards and will never assure your salvation. His grace and your faith will save you. Your works are never a part of the equation.  Once you submit yourself to Jesus Christ and allow Him to be your Savior and your Lord, good will follow. Good follows salvation…it never causes it.
  • Is your love for others deep enough that you would share Jesus with them?

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.””

Proverbs 15:1

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” We have total control of how we talk to others. We must choose to either honor God or to remain prideful and self-righteous. May God be glorified in our responses. Do your answers induce anger or turn people from it? Matthew 12:34 “…..For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Proverbs 14:10 “Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.” Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Proverbs 15:18 “A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.” Proverbs 15:28 “The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.” James 1:19-20 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” Dear Lord, please guide us to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.

Proverbs 14:12

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Not allowing God to lead often leads to some of our greatest disappointments and wasted efforts, however, submitting to His will, always brings peace and joy. Proverbs 16:9 “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
