But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved….For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Faith and salvation are given to us by God as a gift. A gift of great cost to God Himself, counted worthy in His love for us. A gift given regardless of whether we had ‘life sorted’ or not. And just to remind us that works of our doing will not earn any merit with God, any good we do is already works that He had prepared for us and we simply do at the acknowledged or not nudging of the Holy Spirit.
So today awake and be thankful that your salvation is not dependent on your actions and enter into His good works with the purpose of uniting all things in Christ.
