Ephesians 2:5 tells us that it’s by grace that we have been saved. Then what is grace? Grace is God’s unmerited favor, undeserved favor. In this we see that we simply can’t earn it. It is undeserved, unmerited. I realize that this is hard for the mind to comprehend – because we are work oriented. Why would God want to give us something we haven’t earned or something that we don’t deserve? Because He loves us. He so loves us that He sent Jesus to die for us and earn for us everything that we would ever have need of – it’s because of Jesus alone that we receive of God’s blessings. It’s because of Jesus alone that God grace is poured out upon us.
