„For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.“ Ephesians 2: 8-9
I have already written a number of posts from the second chapter of Ephesians. Let’s do one more. It is such a rich epistle that you do not want to skip a single verse.
Two things save us from wrath of God and they are: grace and faith. Grace shows where the source of salvation is and faith enables us to connect to the source. I am happy that Paul added the part about works. They won’t save us. The Word of God does not leave us any possibility to boast or claim that we are good enough to be saved. We are not. It is all through His Grace and it is all by faith.
