I have been sharing the 5 Solas in my Bible Study, so I took a card break to create this Bible Journaling page today featuring Sola Gratia – Grace Alone.
Ephesians 2:1-10 is one of my most favorite passages in the Bible and verses 8-9 sum up Grace Alone very well.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not from yourselves – it is the gift of God. It is not based on deeds, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 TLV
I knew I wanted to feature the hymn Amazing Grace and keep the elements soft so the hymn stayed a bit more of a focal point. I searched for a nice image of the hymn online, printed it on Tomoe River paper which is nearly identical to the thin paper in most Bibles. I trimmed it for the page in my Interleaved Bible. There was a bit of an edge in the margin so I added some beautiful washi from Creative Retreat Kits. I used 2 sets of printables from Charlene Warwick Eternal Word & Worship printed onto clear sticker paper to keep that softness to the page. I then used tracing paper to work out the hand lettering on my page & then freehanded my lettering onto the page. It helps that the hymn provided some guide lines.
I am planning an inside cover creation in one of my journaling Bibles featuring all 5 Solas.
Sola Scriptura – Scripture Alone
Sola Christo or Solus Christus – Christ Alone
Sola Gratia – Grace Alone
Sola Fide – Faith Alone
Soli Deo gloria – to the glory of God alone
