There’s Nothing You Can Do

Thank God that your salvation does not depend on you.

In the physical world there are many ways to be saved, but first you have to be in a situation where you would eventually die without help. A guy in a lifeboat could pull you out of the freezing sater, or a skilled surgeon could save your life on the operating table. In either case you would be saved, and there would be nothing you could do to save yourself.

The same principle applies in the spiritual world. All of us are in a situation where we will eventually die spiritually without help, and there’s nothing we can do to save ourselves. We could thrash around in the freezing water, we could try to operate on ourselves, but all of our efforts would be futile.

All of our efforts won’t help us spiritually, but God is willing to save us–if we only repent and believe in Him.

God saved you by his special favor when you repent and believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.

Ephesians 2:8
