For it is by grace that you have been saved [delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith...[salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but is a gift of God.
- Ephesians 2:8
We were sovereignly given a measure of faith in our original design.
He made sure salvation would never be out of reach.
We were built to long for Him even when we were away from Him.
He provides a grace for all people to receive (not just hear) the gospel.
After salvation we need our faith just as much!
He extends His faith to us and builds it in us as a lifework so we can do all the things we are called to do for the Kingdom of God.
Today: God you have given me your faith, help me to exercise this gift and build it up.
For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus [spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us]. Ephesians 2:10
