Scripture: Ephesians 2:5
However, God is rich in mercy. He brought us to life with Christ while we were dead as a result of those things that we did wrong. He did this because of the great love that he has for us. You are saved by God’s grace!

Thought for the Day: Like many of you, I was sad to hear of Billy Graham’s death. In a time when there is plenty of skepticism when it comes to religion, his name still represents integrity. One of his quotes that seems appropriate for this day is:

I am not going to Heaven because I have preached to great crowds or read the Bible many times. I’m going to Heaven just like the thief on the cross who said in that last moment: “Lord, remember me.”

If there were folks who deserved Heaven because of personal accomplishments, Graham would be among them. Yet it was his humility and complete dependence on grace that made his life and message so powerful. Today, I give thanks for Billy Graham!

Prayer: Merciful God, we are thankful and fully dependent upon your grace. May our lives give witness to this amazing gift. Amen.
