08/04 Ephesians 2:3-5
All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. 4 But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)
Grace is what the Lord gives us in abundance. It is adequate to meet our needs. It is more than adequate to fill us with God’s eternal love and direct us to follow Jesus. His grace gives us what we desperately need and cannot earn-His righteousness.
