Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
the Bible, the grace and mercy of God are often spoken about. The
Bible tells us that our sin separates us from our God, the creator.
As a result of this separation, we have lost the glory of God. However,
God revealed Himself in the form of a man upon this earth, so that
we could be reconciled to Him and to give eternal life back to us,
which we lost because of sin.
He did this out of love for us. Jesus Christ took all our sins upon
Him so that we could be saved. The mercy of God does not give us what
we have deserved – on account of our sins we deserved death. However
Jesus died for us so that we would not be lost, but rather that we
would have eternal life. We did not deserve to have our salvation,
it is a gift of God. A gift is a present, whereby you do not have
to do something to get it. For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
We can only be saved by faith and obedience to Jesus Christ. There
is only one way to receive eternal life. This way is Jesus Christ
alone. Decide now and give Him your life. Repent (be sorry about your
sins and turn to God), be baptized in the name of Jesus for the remission
of sins, then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Believe
in Jesus and be obedient to Him. He loves you with an eternal love.
May He bless you. dka
