God’s Salvation




Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

Salvation is never by work.

No man will be saved by the works they perform, regardless of how holy those works are, or how many works they perform.

Good works, self-sacrifice or self-righteousness can never save a man.

Works are always excluded from the process of salvation, so that no one can boast.

*******

Salvation is only through faith.

Salvation comes to a man only through faith.

Salvation comes when a lost sinner takes God at His Word and believes what the Bible says all about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Salvation is faith, belief, or trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as one’s Savior.

*******

Salvation comes by grace.

Salvation comes as God’s unmerited favor to undeserving sinners.

God reaches out to sinners who deserve His judgment and condemnation.

God saves sinners by His amazing, abundant grace.

*******

Salvation is a gift of God.

Grace and faith never come from within us.

Grace and faith are both the gifts of God.

We cannot believe in the Lord Jesus Christ until He gives us the faith to believe in Him.

We will never come to God on our own.

It is God who must take the first move.

It is God who gives us the faith to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

And when He does, salvation takes place.

Oh! What a wonder of salvation we have!

*******

Salvation is a gift of God.

It is God who first reaches out to save us through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

*******

Are we saved?

Do we trust in God’s grace through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation?

*******

Let us receive God’s offer of love, acceptance, forgiveness, and salvation to us.

Let us believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be eternally saved.

*******

Oh God! Give us faith to believe in your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!

Oh God! Help us to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ all the days of our lives.

While it is true that: " Works are excluded from the process of salvation "... it is equally true, that: " Salvation without works is dead "! Simply put, if you are [ indeed ] saved, then your own actions will properly display it....

As it was written, therefore: " You shall know them by their own fruits!"
