Intersection of Life and Faith

Saved by Grace

Saved by Grace

I’m a Type A kind of guy. I want to get things done. If not careful, I expect others to work as hard and long as I do. This trait has gotten me into trouble more than once. As such it can be hard for me to do nothing. When it comes to being saved, there is not much we need to do, other than believe. Scripture tells us that we are saved simply by believing in Jesus Christ. “For it is by grace through faith---and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift from God.” (Ephesians 2: 8) We cannot perform our way into heaven. Working harder does not gain us any merit nor can we be saved by good works. No, we are saved simply by faith in our Lord.
