2 Timothy 1:9 (New Living Translation)
For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
God Saved us out of Love and grace he saved us to take all the sin of the world and remove our evil ways that we may live a holy life walking in the way Of Christ he planned and formed your entire pathway from beginning to end he already knows what your obstacles are going to be before you do and he took it all out of his death in return for your salvation so that you be rewarded with eternal life
God saved us from the penalty of sin at Calvary. God continues to save us from the power of sin throughout our Christian life, and God is going to save us from the presence of sin when we stand before Him in glorified bodies – and it is all by grace.
We were not saved because of our goodness or achievements. We were not redeemed because of anything that we have done. We were not adopted into God’s family due to any merit that comes from us, but because in eternity past, He purposed to save us – by grace.
God knew before time began who would trust in Christ as Savior and predestined them to become like His Son. And those He predestined He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified – by grace.
And because we have been saved spirit, soul and body we have a holy calling. We are called to be holy, called to be spiritual.. called to be set apart unto God – called to live a godly life that is well-pleasing to Him, because this is His will and purpose for all who are born from above – and it is ALL by grace.
God saved us and called us to live a holy life and He did this, not because we deserved it, but because this was His plan from before the beginning of time – and He did to show us His grace.
