Faith Is A Gift
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)
The Christian Lifestyle is the only one of all the thousands of religions in the world where man does not have to achieve anything. Faith is a free gift from God. We do not have to do anything to earn it. We need not do good deeds or fast and pray for weeks on end to earn God’s Grace. We have been saved by the Grace of God, because we believe in God. Our salvation is not our own achievement.
“Saving is all His idea, and all His work. All we do is trust Him enough to let Him do it… we neither make nor save ourselves” God presents you with Faith as a Gift of Grace. It is free. All you have to do is to hold out your hand to God to receive that Gift.
Through His crucifixion, Jesus has already paid the price of your sins in full once and for all. Because He has settled your debt of sin on your behalf, God forgives you of your sins. All you have to do is to thank God and demonstrate your love for Him in a practical way every day by leading the kind of life He expects of you. So Faith is a Gift to you as His precious son/daughter. Begin to work in His Love, Grace and Faith that was given to you as an absolute free Gift.
