Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Ephesians 2:8–9
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. (NLT)

Today's Inspiring Thought: None Can Boast

If you haven't learned this yet, take note! It's one of the most important truths of the Christian faith.

God's gift of salvation can never be earned. All of God's gifts, in fact, are just that—gifts.

Forgiveness of sin, eternal life, a changed nature, the indwelling fullness of the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts—there's nothing we did or ever can do to earn these things. They are all given to us by God's grace: God's Riches At Christ's Expense.

So, none of us can boast. We can't take credit for any of the wonderful blessings we have in God. We don't deserve them. Joy and gratitude are our only responses to God's grace.
