by His grace they have been erased

Ephesians 2:8-10

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.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

God loves us with such significant love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy. I cannot think of anything I would rather be rich in, then to be rich in God's grace.

I may not know all my flaws, imperfections, sins, or my own weakness.
I DO know that I have many of them. And by his grace they have all been erased.

I do not boast in my good works, for all the Glory goes the Lord.
Salvation cannot be earned. It is truly a free gift from God. There is nothing we can do to earn it. We have to accept this gift of Grace.  For this is all a part of the Lords plan. He wants that we should walk with him. We were created in Christ for good works, to bring Glory to God.

~~~ Prayer ~~~
Father of grace and mercy thank you. Thank you for extending grace even when I have not deserved it. Thank you for giving mercy when I most needed it. Thank you for giving life. Thank you for being my God. Thank you for preparing my way. In Jesus Christ Name. Amen.
