Ephesians 2:8-10 (NIV)
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
*Being saved and receiving the promises of God is not something you earn, but it is your divine right if you have enough faith to receive and act on the opportunity. What's been placed in your heart, once you are saved are desires, which all correlate together to fulfill your purpose. Every person you meet, everything you are given by God, and places He sends you are all a part of your purpose and destiny. The good things that you choose to do or not to do will impact your purpose filled path, and are based on the freedom of choice. Remember though that every choice has a consequence be it positive or negative. Also, every act should be done because you love God, and not out of obligation or in hopes of pay back. Examine the things you're in, the reason behind why you do them, and what you choose to hold on to...Is in line with the word of God? Is it a part of His plan for your life, coinciding with the truth placed in your hurt, or is it a distraction that hinders the grace that has been placed on your life?
