The Gift Is God-Given

Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from
the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows.
JAMES 1:17

The conclusion is unavoidable: self-salvation simply does not work. Man has no way to save himself.

But Paul announces that God has a way. Where man fails God excels. Salvation comes from heaven downward, not earth upward. “Every good action and every perfect gift is from God” (James 1:17).

Please note: Salvation is God-given, God-driven, God-empowered, and God-originated. The gift is not from man to God. It is from God to man.

In the Grip of Grace
