Saved By Grace
Since the creation of the world God’s qualities, his divine nature and eternal power, can be clearly seen based on what He has created so that we are without excuse (Romans 1:20). Our human nature and darkened hearts however often lead us away from acknowledging, giving thanks or glorifying God. We must recognize that there is nothing that we have that is not a gift from God (James 1:17).
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved” (4). “And this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast” (8-9) (Ephesians 2:4-10).
