It's All About Grace - Part 5: Grace Saves
Scripture: Ephesians 2:8–2:10
We are like explorers who are lost in a desert with no idea of where to go until the Holy Spirit comes and takes us to a place where there is water, hope, and life. We are saved by faith. It is not about anything we have done to earn it, but it is what Jesus Christ did on the cross for us. God’s grace is like an endless reservoir of water that comes to us through a canal we can call faith. Saving grace frees us from the penalty of sin, which is eternal death. God’s desire is that we live our lives differently than the world lives. We no longer live for ourselves, but we live a life of obedience to God because we are loved and accepted by Him. When we rely on God’s grace it helps to build our faith, so we can bless others.
