Not because of who I am but because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done but because of who You are
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
• Ephesians 2: 8-9
Here’s one of my favorite quotes about grace:
“A critical eccentricity of the Christian faith is the assertion that people are saved by grace. There’s nothing you have to do. There’s nothing you have to do. There’s nothing you have to do. The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you. There's only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.”
• Frederick Buechner in Wishful Thinking: A Theological ABC
Pray with thanksgiving for the grace of God and with hope that you won’t abuse that grace.
