Ephesians 2:8 (KJV) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Romans 8:24 (KJV) – For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
Mercy is getting something you do not deserve. Grace is not getting what you deserve. By the Grace of God we are saved from eternal life in hell. It is by faith we receive forgiveness of our sins through the blood Jesus shed on the cross.
You are not lost if you are saved. You have Jesus in your heart if you are saved. You know the Way, the Truth and the Life.
By Faith We Understand
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
James 2:26 (NKJV) – For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
If Jesus is your Savior, live like it. Live according to the teachings of Christ. Love your neighbor. Do not seek vengeance. Forgive those who have done you wrong.
John 4:14 (NKJV) – but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
