“You were saved by faith in God, who treats us much better than we deserve. This is God’s gift to you, and not anything you have done on your own. It isn’t something you have earned, so there is nothing you can brag about.
——Ephesians 2:8-9 (Contemporary English Version)
Dearest Father God, we can never thank You enough for sending Jesus and paying the debt for our sins. May we never take the cost of Your gift lightly. At the same time, Father, we want to live confidently, knowing that our salvation is not dependent on our mistakes but upon Your grace. Because of such a lavish gift, we pledge to live for You today in a way that reflects the joy we have at receiving such an awesome gift!!. Through Jesus, our Grace, we pray. Amen.
