“God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
God is rich in love and mercy. So rich that he sent his only Son to be a sacrifice for us, making us alive for all of eternity. That grace, that gift is far beyond what our feeble minds can imagine or dream of, and it’s that grace that should cause us to act. God not only created us, he not only saved us, he has prepared for us good works that we should do in order to glorify him and his goodness.
What are doing today and the rest of this week to show gratitude to God for all that he’s done for you?
