Steko on: can grace be merited

Belief/faith is a qualification...a precondition, nevertheless, it is not an act of merit or a work for which one receives wages or reward. Faith is as a beggar opening and extending his hand to receive a gift.
Salvation is a gift, not a reward for anything earned on our part. Only Christ is to be honored and glorified for His work for our salvation through the cross, death and resurrection.
No one will climb a ladder to heaven by his own merit and be able to say, "Look what I did!" This attitude demeans the finished work of Christ. We cannot add anything to what He completed.

Thanks, for the SPOTD, Tambora!

And thankyou, Wiley, Saint John W., A4T, Keypurr and Chickenman!

I would that all on this forum could rejoice in the Gospel of Grace, giving honor to the LORD Jesus Christ and and being thankful for the life that He has won for us.
