For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God Ephesians 2:8 NET
Beloved, it should be settled in your heart and mind that our daddy God loves you so much. His love was not just word based, but action based. He expressed His love for us, when He gave His Only beloved Son, who died for our sins to reconcile us back to God. He sacrificed His ONLY beloved, so that now He can have MANY beloved Sons and daughters.
The payment or wages of sin is death and as a Just God, He had to punish ALL our sins. But as a loving father, He knew we couldn’t save our selves, we needed divine help. Jesus was sent to die for our sins according to the definite, fixed purpose and settled plan: the fore knowledge of God(Acts 2:23). It was God’s plan for Jesus to take the punishment that was meant for us. Isn’t He a loving Father?
Now having punished Jesus for our sins, He calls out to us to believe on the finished work of Christ. This belief is all that is needed to be saved and have His righteousness imputed in us. You don’t have to work to become the righteousness of God; it’s a FREE gift. Why is it so hard for you to believe that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus? Just Believe! Right believing will always produce right living.
Prayer: My daddy God, I thank you for your free gift of righteousness imputed in me. I live by your grace in Jesus Name.
