Ephesians 2: 8-10: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
As I read this passage of scripture this morning I was reminded of just how much God loves us. He created us, to worship Him to be his greatest creation. As I read this again my heart broke. What did we do? To be separated from our Creator, from God is a pain that we don't realize is there until we come to Him.
I am still in awe at His act of Love. To Love us so much that He came and gave Himself up as a living sacrifice, just to show us that He wants us. I can never be good enough or love enough to "earn" my way to eternal life in the presence of God, but He loves you and me enough to allow that very opportunity, eternal life with Him.
