Perspective posted by John Sorensen on Oct 28, 2016
You’ve heard the phrase, “God helps those who help themselves.” Well, it’s not biblical, but it is deeply imbedded in our minds.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. You see, we work hard. Traditionally we want to stand on our own two feet and carry our own weight. However, when it comes to God’s grace, this attitude can be fatal. When we’re sharing our faith in Christ, the idea of Grace is critical. Heaven is totally free and undeserved. As the Bible tells us clearly in Romans six verse twenty-three “the gift of God is eternal life” and Ephesians two verses eight and nine remind us that we’re been saved by grace through faith . . . and it is not of works. There is nothing we can do to earn God’s favor due to our sin. So, I hope this key Gospel thought helps you as you share your faith with your family, friends, work associates, neighbors and even strangers that you meet.
