Here's David Chadwick with today's Bible Minute.
In Ephesians 2:8-9, the Apostle Paul says that "we are saved by grace through faith, not of our works lest any of us should boast." That's a great reminder for all of us.
That grace, plus nothing, equals the Gospel. If it was grace plus something that we can do to earn God's favor, it's not the Gospel of grace. So therefore, remind yourself incessantly today that the Gospel of grace is a free gift given to you.
It's all about God. It's His gift to us all for His glory. And if we could do anything to earn it, God would never hear the end of it. It would echo through the recesses of eternity. By grace, through faith, we are saved. That way, God receives all the glory.
