7: In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8: that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,
1:7-8 Grace is God’s voluntary and loving favor given to those he saves. We can’t earn salvation, nor do we deserve it. No religious, intellectual, or moral effort can gain it, because it comes only from God’s mercy and love. Without God’s grace, no person can be saved. To receive it, we must acknowledge that we cannot save ourselves, that only God can save us, and that our only way to receive this loving favor is through faith in Christ. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know that it is only by GODS AMAZING GRACE that we are given salvation from our old sinfull self through our faith in JESUS CHRIST!!
