A christian is saved by grace through faith.
Meaning, we did not or can never earn salvation through our own strength. No matter how diligent we are nor how hard we try.
Only God can save people. No one or nothing else has that immense power to save.
This is reassuring for us: we now know that since our salvation is giving to us by God, no one can take it away from us.
But as believers our good works are a proof of our salvation.
So lets go out there and let our salvation shine through our good works to all humanity.
There are so many people around the world who are lost and have not experienced the mercy and love of God.
Since we have experienced such love, it is only natural for us to display it.
By having compassion on them, for we were once living in sin, just like they were.
And sharing with them the same gospel that saved us, with all love, humility and patience. So the Holy Spirit can take over and open their eyes to the truth of Gods word.
Lets go out today with that confidence, and seek any opportunity to love our neighbours.
God bless you and have a wonderful day.
