Stuck on square one

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) Eph. 2:4-5

We were dead. God loved us so He made us alive. Grace is the method. The work of Christ is the means. We can spend so much time trying to understand how salvation works and figuring out our own roles in it that we can forget to simply rejoice in it and reap the benefits of the relationship with Christ it affords us.

Lord, fill me with confidence and joy in Your salvation.
