Grace posted by John Sorensen on Oct 19, 2017
You’ve heard the phrase, “God helps those who help themselves.” Well, it’s not biblical, but it’s deeply imbedded in our minds.
I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. As hard working people, we traditionally want to carry our own weight. However, when it comes to God’s grace, this perspective can be fatal. When we’re sharing our faith in Christ, the point that Heaven is totally free and undeserved is critical. As the Bible tells us clearly from Romans six verse twenty-three “the gift of God is eternal life” and Ephesians two verses eight and nine remind us that we’ve been saved by grace through faith . . . it’s not of works . . . lest any man should boast. There is nothing we can do to earn God’s favor due to our sin. The gift of Heaven requires Something outside of ourselves. And that something is Jesus Christ. I hope this encourages you as you share life today. Visit ShareLife.today for more free Gospel resources.
