For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, Ephesians 2:8
God did not call us to a set of rules but instead to a relationship. God is not interested in what we can do but in how we love Him and how we love others. Do we follow for love or do we follow for another reason?
We are not saved by what we do but by what has been done already on the cross. Salvation is free and given to us freely. It is our choice to receive that gift from Him. Salvation and forgiveness are available because of the cross. Accept the gift of His grace!
