God’s Truth for Trying Times - 1/18/22
We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).
READ: Ephesians 2:8-9
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. [Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV]
CONSIDER: The salvation of anyone is completely dependent on God alone. He chooses to save and he saves by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for God's glory alone. It is the result of the sovereign work of God. He changes our will and causes us to want to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. This is our magnificent, holy God!
THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
