ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Thursday 18th November 2021

TOPIC: UNSPEAKABLE REALITY TEXT: EPHESIANS 2: 1 – 9 There has been a lot of confusion about the truth of justification by faith in the Christendom today. the consequence is that many people are unsure of their salvation; they don’t know if they are really saved or not. This is because many Christians think that they can obtain salvation through their own efforts. This was the situation of the Church in the days of Martin Luther Jr. who discovered that salvation is obtained by faith alone and not by human effort.

Today’s text shows us that it is by grace that we have been saved (vs. 5). That is, when we receive Christ Jesus into our lives, we share in the justification made available by Christ through the shedding of His blood and the forgiveness of sins (vs. 1-3). This is an assurance that all is well (vs. 4-5).

QUESTION Do you think that it is your offerings, going to Church or any works that have earned you salvation? PRAYER Lord Almighty, thank You for the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ in whom I am saved and justified, not by my works/efforts. May I walk with You daily with this assurance, in Christ’s name, Amen.
