As I open gifts this Christmas I want to remember that God gave us the greatest gift of all...Jesus. "Merry Christmas"!"

"Should always quote verse 9 with this to emphasize that it is by the grace of God alone: i.e. "[8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast."] Many think that they are saved by grace but must accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior; that's a NO, NO. We don't do any work to be saved. We reast on His finished work. [John 17:4 "I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."] Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas,"
