Saved by Grace

One day God was looking down to earth and saw all of the evil that was going on. He decided to send an angel down to earth to check it out so He called on an angel and sent her to earth for a time.

When she returned she told God, "yes it is bad on earth, 95% is bad and 5% is good." Well, He thought for a moment and said, “maybe I had... better send down another angel, just to get both points of view.”

So God called another angel and sent him to earth for a time. When the male angel returned he went to God and told him, “yes the earth was in decline, 95% was bad and 5% was good.”

God said, “this was not good,” He would send a letter to the 5% that were good and encourage them, something to help them keep going.

Do you know what that letter said?

Oh......, you didn't get one either?!

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. Romans 12:3

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 ♥
