Today's Verse : Ephesians 2:8-9


February 8, 2012

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and
this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so
that no one can boast.
-- Ephesians 2:8-9

As a child, I loved to receive gifts. In such a simple time of
life, a gift meant I was loved. I didn't worry about the
significance or hidden message in a gift. I wasn't concerned about
the "strings attached" to the gift. It was just a gift -- a free
expression of love I didn't deserve, given to me by someone who
truly cared for me. Isn't it great to get to be God's child and
receive his gift and know we can receive it as a child?!

Thank you, generous Father, for the gift of grace, the gift of
faith, the gift of salvation, and most of all, the gift of Jesus. I
know I can never repay these gifts, but I look forward to saying
"Thank you!" through my lifestyle now and I look forward to
continuing to say "Thank you!" through all eternity. In Jesus' name
I pray. Amen.
