Scriptures: Ephesians 2:8-10, Galatians 2:16

The greatest prize we can claim in our lives is salvation through Jesus Christ. That prize is not for sale. It is by God's grace and through faith. In this message, Dr. Merritt details what how two words--grace and faith--interact in saving us. Salvation is not something we can work toward or earn. There's nothing we can do to deserve it. Yet through faith God gives us this amazing gift--not according to our deeds, but according to Christ's sacrifice. What a tremendous promise and hope in knowing how God saves us!

"God is not some kind of cosmic accountant checking to see if your books balance or making sure you show a net profit when you subtract the badness from the goodness, because once again you cannot earn what is not for sale. You cannot buy what has already been paid for and you cannot deserve a free gift." --Dr. Merritt
