For by grace you are saved through faith: and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God. Not of works, that no man may glory.
(Ephesians 2:8-9 from Douay-Rheims)
By grace…not works. By grace…not works. Read it over and over. Say it again and again. Then believe it without understanding…simply because He says it…this is faith.
Understand…accept the fact that there is nothing we can do to enter heaven…nothing short of one thing…to believe…to accept the gift of heaven that He offers us…the grace He extends to us. His grace is free, unearned and undeserved…accepted by faith.
Set you clock…mark your calendar…the place is Golgotha…the time is 12p.m. Be there and watch His only begotton Son pay the price for your sins. There, at the cross, you will find God’s grace as He offers to you the way to heaven…Jesus.
Accept this gift given freely to you. Accept this gift of forgiveness, then understand with the heart that it is by grace you are saved through faith’ and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God, Not of works, that no man may glory.
