*** Summarize this week’s message from the Pastor’s Sermon Notes. ***

Passage: Ephesians 2:4-9, John 15:13

1.  Why is it so natural to think we should have to earn salvation?  Why do so many Christians get this wrong, and how do we avoid that trap ourselves?

2.  What stops us from earning salvation?

3.  What are some of the things we’ll have in Heaven because of Jesus?  What are some of the things we have here because of Jesus?  Why is it that Christians love to claim Heaven but rarely claim many of the benefits of being a child of God on Earth?

4.  Application:  Will you commit to showing mercy to someone this week?  How?
