Turtle on a fence post

I have posted the picture of a turtle on the top of a fence post for a reason. If anyone has ever seen a turtle on a fence post, you can be sure of one thing: He didn’t get there on his own! Now let me share a spiritual lesson with you! Ephesians 2:8-9 reads “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast. Our salvation is a free gift bought for us by the precious blood of The Lord Jesus Christ. Not by our works, for if we must work to obtain it or to keep it, then it is not a gift! If I have to work to obtain or to keep the gift that my wife gave me last Christmas, then it is not a gift. Our good works are accomplished because we are saved, not to be saved! So, since our salvation was purchased by the obedience of King Jesus and is obtained by receiving this free gift, then our placement into the Kingdom of God is by His finished work and that makes all believers like the turtle on the fence post! Enjoy the view from this exalted position, rest in His love and remember that His love for us is full and final! May our love for Him be the same!
