It is all about Jesus.
The saying is – We are saved by grace through faith in Christ.
This is not only a well-known saying, it is indeed Biblical. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)
But if we break it down, we can take this well known, short, succinct saying and make it even succinter. In fact, we can shorten it to just one word.
We are saved by grace through faith in Christ.
We are saved by grace. Grace is a gift from Jesus.
“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17) Grace comes through, from, and is found in Jesus.
So we can change our saying to We are saved by Jesus through faith in Jesus.
So, we are saved by Jesus through faith in Jesus.
Let’s look at faith. We are saved through faith. Where does faith come from? You guessed it, Jesus.
“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:2)
Jesus is the author of our faith. He is our faith. He designed, created, He authored it.
So our saying now becomes – We are saved by Jesus through Jesus in Jesus.
So, as you can see. It is all about Jesus. It is only about Jesus.
It is Jesus.
That’s all that needs to be said…
