Ephesians 2:8-9 ” For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
Read that scripture again….Our salvation is a gift. All that is required is faith. We don’t have to struggle and fight for it. We don’t have to jump through hoops. It is through our faith. Our belief in the Christ. Through our belief that He is and He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Saved, protected, preserved, that is what His children are. What a beautiful promise.
Romans 10:9-13 “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
