Committed to teaching and obeying the word of God

Sola Gratia

Today we take a look at what the scripture says about grace by looking at Ephesians 2:1-10. We see what the Roman Catholic Church definition is by looking at their catechism, and comparing it to what scripture says. Scripture is very clear about how our salvation is based entirely on the grace of God alone, and there isn’t a single thing that we can do to merit or earn our salvation. In our sinful state apart from the grace of God, we are well deserving of the wrath that is to come, and we will be held accountable for our wicked deeds. However, God by his love and mercy provided us a way to escape his wrath, and have our sins, past, present, and future be paid in full. All of which was paid for on the cross by Jesus Christ. And it is only by grace through faith that we are saved. And the good works that we do after we are saved are only possible because of God’s grace at work in us. We must be diligent to remember that even the smallest claim of merit robs God of some of His glory.
