“For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;”
The day before we read the scripture of how Paul was praying for his people so that their faith could be complete.
Here we read faith is a gift of God. This is the answer to the previous scripture.
Faith is a gift.
He has given us everything we need to be complete. He doesn’t charge us, we don’t have to beg for it.
No matter what we feel or see, what we’re thinking or the situations that are around us, God is on our side. He has already given us the gift of victory. We’re completely covered. Joy is here.
