Did you pay for part of it? Any of it?

By Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“But God, Who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ (by grace ye are saved). Ephesians 2:5

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Suppose your best friend offered to buy you a new car. You tell him that you can’t accept it outright and offer to help pay for the car. Then you say, “Here’s a quarter. Thank you!”

Now you’re driving around, and somebody compliments you on your new car. You say, “Thanks! My friend and I bought this car.”

Wouldn’t that be ridiculous? Well, that’s what we’re doing with God when we add our two bits-worth of self-effort to His grace. If you do that, you take the glory from Almighty God.

When you get to heaven, all you’re going to be able to say is, “Jesus paid it all.”

ACTION POINT:
Spend some time reading Ephesians 2 today and praise God for His divine plan of salvation.
