Saved By Grace.

We as humans need to realize just how little we are involved in the process of Salvation.

God is the One whom saves us by His grace.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Having predestinated us into the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. to the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved: in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." Ephesians 1:1-7

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our sins.

Salvation was God's idea, He chose us before the foundation of the world.

Forgiveness through salvation is the work of God.

It is a precious and gracious gift given to you and me.

"By grace have you been saved through faith; not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast." Ephesians 2:8-9 NASB

once most people are saved they have this mentality that they can prove the love to God through works/service.

There is only one way to show your devotion to Him, and that is through total surrendaer.

It is the offering of our lives back to Him who created us.

It is knowing hat His gift of eternal life out weighs anything we could do or hope to accomplish in His name.

God does not change! Aren't ya glad of that.

He did not save us on the basis of who we are or what we have done, or what we will do in the future.

He saved us based on what His Son did on the cross.

All of us have sinned, fallen short of what is acceptable in His sight.

God has chosen a way by which our sins; past present and future are forgiven.

God delivers us from sin, and then gives us the opportunity to know Him through an intimate relationship with Him.

We all have a sin problem, because of the fall of man.

We compare ourselves to others instead of comparing themself and their life to Jesus, the Only Son of God.

The one willing to die for you and me because He loved us so much and He wanted to do His Father's will.

God is the one whom calls us.

"No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him:" John 6:44a

When God forgives, it is gone never to be remembered again.

Christ forgivenss for my salvation took care of the penalty of my sin.

Jesus paid our debt in full that day on the cross.

Every sin that i have ever committed or will commit is forgiven.

Does that mean we go out and sin. No!! Heaven forbid.

When we sin we are to acknowledge the wrong choices/decisions as a believer, and ask for His forgiveness for yielding to that temptation.

Our need for a Savior does not end the moment we are saved.

Honey, its just beginning, for this is were we become totally dependat upon HIm and Him alone.

We need Jesus evry turn in life.

We must come to the point where He that is in us is greater than any temptaion to yield to sin.

That is the key to getting the victory, is yielding to Him.

We need His protection, provision , guidance and forgiveness.

Isn't it great to know that we have an advocate with the Father.

Jesus is that someone who will stand with us.

"If we say we have no sin, we decieve ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. My little children, these things I write unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous." 1 John 1:8-2:1
