Application for April 12-13, 2014 :: Ephesians 2:8-10

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:8-10

If you ever wanted an anti-works save-yourself passage this is it.

How many different ways could Paul say the same thing?

Hmmmm, someone might think, how will I be saved?

“By grace” – getting a good that I don’t deserve
“And this is not your own doing” – it’s not what you did
“it is the gift of God” – Salvation is given to you, not bought by you.
“not a result of works” – it’s not what you do
“so that no one may boast” – if it was something I did, I could brag, but it’s not.
“For we are his workmanship” – God did the work that created us
“created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” – all the good that we do, it is because God chose for us to do them.

God made a way for us. We don’t have to do it ourselves. Hallelujah!
