I Peter 1:9
9For you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Notice in this verse that the ‘result’ of our faith is ‘salvation.’ We know that salvation is not a merit based system, but simply the grace of God. Faith alone is what saves our souls. Our faith makes us children of Abraham, and so we enter into covenant with God through our faith in Jesus Christ. This week try to avoid feeling like you have to earn your salvation, as if there were some amount of kind deeds that could make you worthy of heaven. Jesus is the only one worthy, but the good news is, “He himself bore our sins, in his body on the cross” and we are saved!
Love you all,
