It is erroneous for any Christian to think that he was saved through his own work.
No one is saved by his efforts, but we are saved by grace through Jesus Christ.
The scripture emphasized, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9
Saved by Grace Lesson
Christians are fortunate to have someone who paid for the penalty of their sins. Since we have believe in Jesus Christ, Christ has gravitated us with God through his saving grace.
The Savior paid for our sins with his own life. He volunteered himself to suffer and die on our behalf as a sacrificial lamb.
We are no more indebted to paying penalty of sin.
Christ has paid our debts; he has saved us; he has cleansed us, and he has transformed us! Christ has made us become new, and we are no more the same old person in sin. Old has gone, new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17)!
We Christians are the redeemed people of God, and crown of glory is awaiting us in heaven.
Meanwhile, none of all benefits of Christianity is awarded to us through hard work or self righteousness.
We are saved and blessed by God – through Jesus Christ. Glory be to his holy name!
Prayer on Salvation By Grace
Dear God, I praise you for saving me through your beloved Son Jesus Christ.
I understand that you have not saved me as a result of my personal works, but you have saved me by grace.
Therefore, my life will remain dedicated to praising your name!
I will praise you always for saving me by grace.
Please, I ask for more grace to remain faithful to you.
Do not let me abuse my salvation with sin, but help me to live a sanctified life that will remain fit for your kingdom.
Empower me through your Holy Spirit to keep focus and remain serving you until the end of my life, so that I can meet you in heaven.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
