Ephesians 2:5 says, You have been saved by God’s grace. When Adam and Eve sinned, humankind was condemned to a life of separation from God. Romans 5:19 says, One man disobeyed God, and many became sinners. But in the same way, one man obeyed God, and many will be made right. That one man was Jesus. He died and rose again so that we could be saved. We cannot save ourselves. Romans 3:23 says, All people have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory. Praise God that chapter doesn't end there. Verse 24 says, People are made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. Grace is getting what we don't deserve. What we deserve is death but what we get is eternal life with God—how awesome is that!
