Lent – Friday, March 19

Digital Version of Devotional

Author Bill Smith

Ephesians 2:1-10

Reflection: v. 8, ‘For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God’

Paul here is reminding the Church at Ephesus that salvation comes by grace. It is not about us, or what we have accomplished, but because of God’s grace.

Through God’s faithfulness to human beings, we have been redeemed. Our redemption is in fact a gift of grace! Hence, there are no ‘big I’s or little you’s’ in the church, because all of us need and depend upon the grace of God that is so abundantly shared!

Prayer Thanks be to God that my salvation comes from you, O Lord! Thank you for the gift of your grace!
