No One Is Perfect

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.
Ephesians 2:8

The laws God gave Moses for the Israelites made them aware of their sin, because no one was able to keep the law perfectly. Each and every person broke one law or another and they had to atone for it through sacrifices.

As hard as they tried to keep the law perfectly, no one could.

Before Jesus Christ, God’s people tried to achieve righteousness through their obedience to the law—by their works and what they could accomplish on their own.

Since Christ’s death and resurrection, we no longer have to atone for our sins or be subject to the law. Jesus came so we might be made clean—washed of our sins. This gift is a gift of grace—there are no strings attached and we can do nothing to earn it. It is freely given to those who believe in Him.

Being a “good” person or trying to atone for sin won’t save you. The only way to eternal life is through faith in the love and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We can be thankful today that Jesus came to die for each one of us because of His immense love. You don’t have to be perfect—believe you are saved by grace through faith.
