SAVED BY GRACE
By John Baker
Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:8-10
An essential truth that must be understood in a study of salvation is that we are saved by grace. Someone defined God's grace as receiving from God that which we do not deserve, could never earn and can never repay. We are not saved by who we are or what we have done, but by Who God is and what He has done on our behalf. "For He hath made Him (The Lord Jesus Christ) to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (II Corinthians 5:21).
According to Paul in I Corinthians 15, the good news by which we are saved is that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. We are to accept this by faith. Saving faith is trusting God in spite of the circumstances or the consequences. The wonderful part about it is that this salvation is available to anyone. We read in Titus 2:11 that, "the grace of God that bringeth salvation (makes salvation available) hath appeared (or shines forth) to all men" (that is all men without distinction). The only question that remains dear reader is, have you appropriated this truth of salvation by grace as your very own? If not, I would encourage you to do so right now.
