Ephesians 2:8-9

Verses 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.”

It’s not about who we are that gets us into Heaven…earthly society’s designations mean nothing in the Kingdom.
It’s not about our achievements that get us into Heaven…we are born into sin, and thus the strike/ball count is already 2 strikes against us.
It’s not about what we can do that gets us into Heaven…man seems to place more value on the material things of this world than the eternal things of the Kingdom.
It’s not about who we know that gets us into Heaven…you can state ad nauseum how important you are and all the important people you know…

EXCEPT:

If you know Jesus Christ, confess your sins and acknowledge Him, accept Him as Lord and Savior in your life…”For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16.

There’s nothing you can do on your own or by your own power, but you can accept the grace God extends through His Son.

You see, to paraphrase an old saying, it’s not about you…it’s about Jesus!

That old phrase you hear “if not for the grace of God”….it is about the grace of God!

Something to think about.
