Ephesians 2:1-10

August 25th 2016

One of the most debated religious questions today is “How does a person make it to Heaven? How would you answer that question today? 

Today as we look at Ephesians 2:1-10 we discover how people today make it to heaven and that, my friends, is grace. Grace is truly the defining attribute of the gospel. It is completely outside of man’s ability. He cannot work or earn it. He cannot buy it nor through a lifetime of good deeds and achievements could he ever obtain it.  It is completely an undeserved, free gift from God. Ephesians 2:8-9 says it best.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV) “For by Grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is a gift from God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast”.

Even today, with Scripture being so clear some people after accepting God’s free and complete grace still try to obtain perfection through good works and deeds. Today remember to put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ as the only thing you need, for the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses all of our sins and makes us white as snow.
