Saved by God’s Grace Alone, Through Faith Alone (Part 1)

100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #23 | with Daniel Whyte III

TEXT — Ephesians 2:8-9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

If you could gather in one great assembly a representative of every religion in the world and spend thousands of hours discussing the question, “How can man be saved?” you would only end up with two doctrines regarding salvation. One, that God saves man. And two, that man saves himself. As we see from God’s Word today, the Bible teaches that God saves man by grace alone through faith alone. I want to point out to you today, three reasons why man cannot save himself.

I. Man is not saved because of what he is.
II. Secondly, man is not saved because of what he does.
III. Thirdly, man is not saved because of what he feels.

Right now, my friend, you can stop trying to get to Heaven on you own and take advantage of the grace that God is offering you. The Bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
