Ephesians 2:8

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.

Insight: The best gifts come with no strings attached, when we believe in Christ we receive grace that we can not earn and do not deserve, it is truly a gift from God! Trying to work for it or take credit for this gift will be a fruitless effort. 

Prayer: Jesus, my default is to work harder and make more promises to be a better person, but I know today that I can not "save my self". I thank you for your grace given to me as a gift, I believe you alone can forgive and save me. I love you, Amen.
