You Can’t Have It Both Ways

August 21   
Daily Reading – Psalms 52-57 / Romans 11:1-12

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Oh, the grace of God, isn’t it wonderful? I love Ephesians 2:8 where it says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” It’s by the grace of God that we are saved. Our part is simply to apply our God-given faith in the person of Jesus, who paid it all. When we apply our faith to God’s grace, we receive His gift, salvation.

    Romans 11:6 says we can either believe in grace or in works. If we believe in works, then we can’t really call it grace. If we believe in grace, we can’t really call it works. You can’t have it both ways. If you believe in works, you miss the grace of God. I love His Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Shouldn’t we all just stop and say
thanks for His grace right now?
