Ephesians 2:4-5 ” But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.”

We can’t begin to fathom God’s great compassion towards us.  For we are separated from Him by our sin… spiritually dead…with no hope.  But God saw us through eyes of unconditional love…looking beyond who we were, to who we could become in Christ Jesus.  This gift of grace is extended to all…for it says, “it is by grace you have been saved.”  The work has already been done, it was accomplished on Golgotha when Jesus was crucified.  There is nothing we can do to receive it, for it is God’s unearned and unmerited favor that bestows this free gift  of eternal life on us.  We may never be able to fathom God’s mercy, but we can accept and trust in His Son, Jesus.
