Ephesians 2:1-10, Measuring Up

Key Verse

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—not the result of works, so that no one may boast.
— Ephesians 2:8

RCL Daily Devotion for Friday, September 27, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

I’m so grateful I don’t need to meet some special criteria in order to qualify for God’s grace. Having grown up steeped in a society hyper-focused on “success,” which is defined by some arbitrary standard, I’ve spent a lot of time worried about what other people think of me, about whether I’m measuring up.

These days I work at letting go of what the world defines as success, so I can focus on what is needful. And what is needful is my relationship with God, who accepts me as I am, who gifts me with a ridiculous abundance of grace and mercy, and who promises everlasting life.

Generous God, thank you for teaching me what is truly important in my day to day life. Amen.
