For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Salvation is a gift of God, presented free and not in exchange for anything when we place our faith in Christ. It then magnifies God, and God alone. He blesses us not because of our merit but because of His goodness. I find great comfort in this because nothing I do, or have ever done, deserves the love God gives me. He loves me for me.
Thank you heavenly Father for loving me, for me, and not anything I do.
