It’s Not Mine

Eph 2:8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:    KJV

This verse stood out to me this morning in a way like never before.

The Lord is showing us through the language here that the whole thing–grace, salvation, faith–the whole kit and kaboodle is of Him.

I can’t even brag about or claim any part in the faith that I have, because it is not something that I have. It is something that I have been given.

I have been given the faith to believe. I have been given the grace to receive. I have been given the salvation from sin, from dead works, from going my own way in my own strength.

It is all of Him.

I bow myself before the Father.

  1. Excellent……..it’s ALL Him. We we DEAD, DEAD, DEAD an objects of His wrath apart from His work in saving some of us as a precious love for the Son, to the praise of His glorious grace!

    How many ‘gospel’ presentations have your heard over the years that did not even address the SIN issue? Or if it was discussed, sin was just an impersonal gulf/separation and something Satan caused, NOT a result of willful disobedience?

    Indeed, “Salvation is of the Lord.”—Jonah 2:9.
