Free Gift Not Earned

Galatians 3:1-4

“Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has cast an evil spell on you? For the meaning of Jesus Christ’s death was made as clear to you as if you had seen a picture of his death on the cross. Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?  Have you experienced so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it?” Paul is telling us that there is nothing; I mean nothing we can do to earn grace! This is a gift from God. If we had to work at receiving grace by being good and doing good deeds, then Christ would never had to die for you.  Sadly, the Galatians did not get that over 2000 years ago and many people today still don’t. Christ died to set you free from sin. We are good and do good deeds because of His grace. Feel His love today and thank Him for your freedom from sin. God Loves Ya 😉
