Scripture Reading: Ephesians 1:2-6

In all of Scripture, there is no more significant, vital and awe-inspiring word than "GRACE." The love, mercy and purpose of God are inseparably bound within this incomparable five-letter term. The elect of God are the product of His grace, without which they would have no life, no goal, no hope. As mere mortals, we are powerless to gain God's favor. We are helpless to rise from the ruin of our
Adamic heritage. "As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one ... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:10, 23).

What to do! In our natural state, we are totally helpless. The apostle Paul stated it well: "For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh.) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not .... They that are in the flesh cannot please God" (Romans 7:18; 8:8). Where to turn? "We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags" (Isaiah 64:6). Being in this helpless condition, we must obviously rely upon some other power than our own. We who are saved know that God provided our escape apart from any effort of our own. "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us" (Titus 3:5).

This is grace at work-God's sovereign grace. "To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." "For BY GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8).
