Message of the Day: Salvation is by Grace Alone
“Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began…” (2 Timothy 1:9, NKJV)
Salvation is by grace alone and is based not on human effort but on God’s saving plan and the gracious gift of his Son. The plan of salvation was made in eternity past. That is, before the world was made, God planned to give people eternal life, but this gift becomes theirs only through Christ’s victory over death on the cross. (1:9-10)
We do not deserve any part of the good we have received from God, and can never merit one moment of the exceeding great and eternal weight of glory which is promised, if not by the “purpose and grace” given to us by God. Our works has nothing to do in causing God to choose and save us. Thank you Lord!
