We are saved by grace through faith through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God has extended His hand of salvation to all whom believe. It is by grace we are reconciled to God so that we may have eternal life. It is important to understand that our belief in God, not in ourselves, allows us to live the life He freely came to give. When we do not understand the source of our strength, and what He is able to do through us, we have loss our sense of who we are as believers.
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
We must understand these principles in order to understand who are in Christ. When we fully embrace our identity, we will be able to gain access to the resources God has prepared for us through His Kingdom.
