8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)
I’m sorry to say these verses didn’t mean much to me until years after I’d already been walking with Christ. Maybe that’s why they’re still hard for me to grasp. My salvation is nothing of my doing? Purely a gift? Really, God?
It’s almost too good to be true. But I know it IS true. I thank God for this lavish gift of salvation that we don’t deserve or have to earn.
Is there a scripture you had to grow into?
Is there one now that you can’t fully grasp but want to?
Do you already have Ephesians 2:8-9 memorized or would like to?
