Eph 2:8: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. – Ephesians 2:8

Salvation is given to us through faith and is a gift from God (not by works) that must be freely accepted. We must remember that God intervened and revived mankind through Jesus’ teachings.  This was an act of grace alone.
