Saved By Grace, Part 2



July 7, 2020


I remember going to see my father in-law six months before he passed away. My wife and I were always going through Springfield, Missouri on missions trips, and we would stop by to visit him and Connie's step-mother. He would always ask me if we were coming or going. On this particular visit I was alone, and when he ask me if I was coming or going I told him that I was both coming and going. Then I said that I had come to see him.


He then began to apologize to me for anything that he might have said, or possibly done, to hurt Connie and myself. I told him that there was nothing to forgive him for. All the things that he referred to had been forgiven a long time ago.


This Scripture in Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) came up once again, and I was able to share with him that there was nothing that we could ever do to be good enough to make heaven our finial destination. It’s not by our works that will gain entrance into heaven.


I asked him to pray a prayer with me just to make sure that all was well with his relationship with God. I truly believe that he was already saved long ago, but somewhere he had been convinced that he must do good things to be saved. He sat there silently and listen to what the Lord had prepared me to say to them. He told me later that he had never felt a prayer like that before, and he couldn't say anything for several hours.


Ephesians 2:4-6 (TPT)

4 "But God still loved us with such great love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy.

5 "Even when we were dead and doomed in our many sins, he united us into the very life of Christ and saved us by his wonderful grace!

6 "He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!"


Father, there are not enough words to expresses just how grateful I am that Your love for us lifts us up out of death's grip and gives us life. In Jesus' name, Amen


Blessings on the journey and the remember best is yet to come.
