"Father, forgive them."
 

Ephesians 2: 8, 9 & 10

"For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them."

OUR TICKET TO HEAVEN IS FREE!

We are saved by the amazing grace of God the Father in Heaven through our faith in His "only begotten Son," Jesus.

Our salvation is the free "gift of God, not of works." We can't work our way into Heaven.

LIKE THE OLD HYMN SAYS, "JESUS PAID IT ALL! ALL TO HIM I OWE."

The shed blood of Jesus the Christ on that cruel cross at Calvary paid the penalty for our sins.

All we have to do is repent (turn away from our sin), and go to God in prayer in Jesus' name, confessing our sins and asking His forgiveness. And the Bible assures us, "He is faithful and just to forgive us."

Then, we must get to work "for we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them."

It's a contract. God freely gives us the gift of salvation, and we are to get to work for Him, speading the gospel and furthering His Kingdom here on Earth. We don't really have any other choice.

"WE are HIS WORKMANSHIP, CREATED in CHRIST JESUS unto GOOD WORKS, which GOD has BEFORE ORDAINED that WE should WALK in THEM," or DO THEM!

Once we have our free ticket to Heaven we MUST get to work, and work our way to Heaven. We are to work for Him until we pass from this life through death into eternity and into the presence of God the Father, our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, and all of those Saints who've gone before us.

May God richly bless all of us, and I pray we bless Him!
