09 Jun Ephesians 2:8

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.

God’s people, the Israelites, had a cycle: SIN, CONSEQUENCES OF SIN, SORROW OVER SIN, TURN BACK TO GOD, GOD SENDS A REDEEMER. God is always there, ready to forgive us and redeem us. Can we earn God’s grace?
