Discarding our futile efforts to save ourselves like filthy rags, God saved us by His amazing grace and then called us to a holy and eternal purpose in Christ Jesus. There is no need to earn His love. In fact, even trying to earn it turns God’s precious gift of grace into a paycheck. Remember this freedom from self-righteousness. Remember this clarity of calling. Remember this reason for being. What priceless heavenly gifts from our loving Father! You have been saved by grace for His divine purpose. Look at the grace in which you now stand because of Jesus and give thanks. For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace (John 1:16).
