A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, November 10


Ephesians 2:8-9


For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.

We are saved by God’s grace- undeserved. But He has saved us due to our faith in Him. We believe, and so we are saved. I believe in God the Father, and I believe He walked on earth in human form, his Son. I believe Jesus died for all of us, and due to this, we may have eternal life. I believe God dwells in each of us as the Holy Spirit. I could never turn away. Amen

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

A growing faith is what we all strive to have and what God desires to give us. But how, in a day-to-day life, can we develop a faith that conquers fears. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.. God wants us to know Him and completely rely on His direction in our lives. It’s through the hearing, reading, and meditation in the Scriptures that we begin to experience a strong, confident faith that eliminates worry and fear. Spending time in prayer and quiet worship develop…

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith---and this is not from ourselves, it is the gift of God---not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


By adding the 10th verse to this reading I am showing why I am confused by this concept and possibly my ignorance of the passages meaning. I don’t believe that I can be saved by just existing. My actions and attitudes determine whether or not I’ll be saved.


Dear Lord, we are created to do good works but if we don’t do them, can we be…

Ephesians 2: 8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith---and this is not from ourselves, it is the gift of God---not by works, so that no one can boast.

Faith in itself does not merit salvation. It is a response of trust that the Holy Spirit will work within us and lead us to salvation. Faith is a free gift from God helping us to eliminate any chance that we take credit for our own self-effort. Faith is the gift that keeps us heading on the road to salvation.


Dearest Lord, the gift of faith makes us better. It affords us the opportunity to work our way to eternal life with you. Thank you for th…

Ephesians 2:8–9 Paul makes plain a specific sequence of events in our cosmic destiny: grace, faith, salvation. Without any any understanding of divine grace, faith seems irrational and ludicrous to a non-believer. Perhaps our failure as a church to convey the message of God’s grace, choosing instead to emphasize God’s judgement, is at the root of the steep decline we have seen in the last century. This has not gone unnoticed by certain elements of the church as we seem to be in a cycle of an emphasis on what Bonhoeffer called “cheap grace,” with no thought given to divine judgment. Until we focus on what Scripture says and try to live it out instead of bending and shaping our messag…

Ephesians 2:8–9 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. We are saved simply because we have believed. For this gift we say thank you. But it doesn’t end there. In verse 10 it says. ……… he has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Yes, if we believe and have faith, we are saved. But there is more expected of us. Make disciples, help the poor, and feed the hungry. There is no sitting back and…
