Receive the gift

This post is part of a blog series on bible verses that give us inspiration and comfort.  Thank you for visiting!

Bible verses that comfort me:

Ephesians 2:8-9

What I love about these verses:

That God gives me grace through faith. I don’t have to earn it. This is so comforting because I could never do enough to earn grace. As a gift, however, I can receive grace. Jesus did the work, and I receive the gift.

These verses connects to current, daily life by:

It is wonderful when people help others. It is fantastic when people help others! I love that and hope it continues. When you receive God’s grace through Jesus, you want to help others. It becomes a natural part of reflecting the love Jesus first shared with you. You can never earn your way to heaven with works. You can, however, reflect your thankfulness for grace through love for others.
