Saved by works or saved by grace? Titus 3:5 (NIV)

If you believe in the finished work of Jesus, you are saved and reconciled to God for all eternity. Hell is no longer an issue. Your salvation is a gift from God to you. • Is salvation free? • You didn’t work for it; You didn’t deserve it with anything you did; You cannot be proud of anything because your salvation is given to you by God:

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:8-10; NIV)

From now on, as one of Jesus’ beloved sheep, you are a new creation in your true self, your Spirit, which is created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:7). Start — through faith — believing what God’s Word says about your new creation and tell your soul (consciousness, thoughts, feelings, memories) and body the truth about who you are.

Concretely: Instead of feelings from the soul (‘Ah, I’m not feeling well today, I feel so powerless’) You determine with your faith (‘No way, God gives me new, fresh strength every day’).

God “gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:29-31; NIV)

Think God and not devil

In general: With your faith, you speak all of God’s promises of health, well-being, joy of life, care and protection and no longer think the doubt and fear thoughts that the devil wants to give you.
