Ephesians 2: 8 (NKJV) 

" For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God

Pastor's Thought

I was reading Billy Graham's devotional 'Wisdom for Each Day' and came across one which I would like to share with you this month. 

Graham wrote, "Astronomers tell us that every star moves with precision along its celestial path. To ignore the detailed rules of the universe would spell ruin to a star. The laws of nature are fixed, and for a star to ignore those laws would be folly - if it were even possible.

    If the laws in God's material realm are fixed and exact would God be so haphazard in the spiritual realm, where the eternal destinies of billions of people are at stake? No! Just as God has equations and rules in the material realm, He also has equations and rules in the spiritual realm.  For instance, the Bible says, "the wages of sin is death" Romans 6: 23.  This is God's formula: when a person sins, he or she will pay for it - in this life and in the life to come. 

    The formula continues, though, and it is the way of God's grace - Jesus' death on the cross for our sins. We cannot be saved by our own good works, but only through faith in the One who took our sins upon Himself and died in our place. That is grace!"
