God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

Title: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves
Scripture: Ephesians 2:8-9
Big Idea: Hard work pays off. We see it when we challenge ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally… but what about spiritually? Is our relationship with all God all about working hard to earn joy or happiness, a blessing from God, or even an inheritance? The fact is, God appreciates out hard work; but we could never do enough to earn our way to heaven, because of our sin. Instead, we are thankful that God helps those who CAN’T help themselves, you and me. We can’t earn our way into a relationship with God or into heaven–and we don’t have to–thanks to God’s grace.
