Daily Might: Our Salvation is by Grace, not by Works.

We cannot save ourselves by our own works, your own goodness, even our own attempts to keep God’s laws and to love Him. Our Salvation is by grace, not by works. We cannot be good enough, we cannot be perfect enough, to earn, merit or deserve the heavenly perfection of His own Holy Salvation by His own Grace, Love and Mercy! We are bound to fail and to make mistakes, that’s how God created us — it is impossible for anyone to be saved without the miracle-working power of God!

Accepting Salvation through His Word is a work of God’s Grace. It’s free; it can only be received. It’s the gift of God — you can’t work for it. You can’t earn a gift or else it wouldn’t be a gift. — You haven’t got much of anybody’s righteousness except Christ’s, and He’s the only One that can give it to you!

God can’t help you save yourself, since He does not help those who think they can save themselves but only those who know they can’t. — God’s idea of goodness is Godliness — a sinner who knows he needs God and depends on Him for Salvation. — God’s idea of saintliness is not sinless perfection, or assumed self-worth without Him. It’s a sinner saved by grace, a sinner who has no perfection, no righteousness of his own, but is dependent on the grace and the Love and the mercy of God by faith. Those are the true saints — the ones that know that only God can be the one to save them!

If you haven’t yet received God’s free gift of salvation, you can have it right now. Just pray this short sample prayer:

“Dear Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that You love me. I now open my heart and ask You to come in. Forgive me for my past wrongs, and please give me Your gift of eternal life in Heaven. Fill me with Your love, peace, and joy, and help me learn to share that love and joy with others. Amen.”
