Jesus Christ – name above all names. There’s no other life that’s had such a profound impact on the world. Even our calendar is set with reference to his death. His life totally contradicted religion at the time. His suffering and death on the cross at the hands of the religious leaders seemed like a triumph for the powers of darkness. But three days later he resurrected. Death could not hold him – it had been defeated. The wages of sin now cancelled for those who believe and rely on Him for salvation. That’s amazing grace – it’s not religion at all.
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.
