Manna For Today: Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Ephesians 2:8 – For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.
The intersection of grace and faith is where amazing things happen; blind eyes have been opened, the lame walks again, the deaf hears, those unable to speak do so, dreaded diseases are healed and even the dead has been raised and live again.
A way has been made out of no way in that intersection. The most important thing that could happen to us on earth happened at that intersection; that is, our salvation.
I appreciate that the text places responsibility for these awesome things clearly outside of our ability, “and this is not of your own doing.”
Clearly every good and perfect gift in our lives has come from our gracious, kind and generous heavenly Father who doesn’t change. His gift to us is all that He is and does; how wonderful is that!
Today, focus on Him in such a way that you find yourself in that intersection of grace and faith! I wonder what beautiful gift He’ll give to you today!
Peace and blessings!
