Ephesians 2:8-10 (NKJV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
We cannot work for our salvation so that means we cannot earn it. God loves us and through His grace and Jesus going to the cross we can be saved. Have you ever really thought of the price Jesus paid for your sins? The gift of grace that we cannot earn that is there for us to receive. We need to seek forgiveness and believe that He went to the cross for us. We need to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and be thankful for all He did.
Acceptance is the beginning of a new opportunity for us to become all He desires us to be. He wants our works to reflect His love, our testimonies tell of His love and our walk to be one that others will see. God has a plan for you and when He has brought you through He wants you to share and give Him the glory. Every time you share what He has done for you He gets all the glory and may in turn lead someone to learn of His grace.
So know He loves you and truly share the gift He has given you and that is His grace, His forgiveness and most of all His love. To God be all the glory!
