00765 - The Difference Between Faith And Works

Understanding the difference between salvation based on faith and not works is essential. Salvation through faith means we are saved by believing in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for our sins, not by our efforts or good deeds.

Ephesians 2:8-9 explains it well: "Because of his kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it." We cannot earn our way to heaven; it is a divine gift we receive through faith.

This leads us to a place of humility and gratitude, recognising that our salvation is not something we deserve but a generous gift from a loving God. Let’s deepen our faith and live in a way that reflects our gratitude for His boundless grace.


Your salvation is a gift from God; always recognise that.


Thank You, Lord, for my faith, which has made me whole. Amen.

Action Point

Consider doing a bible study on faith for salvation.
