Posted on

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭8-9‬ NIV)

For it is only because of The Lord God Almighty’s unmerited favor, kindness and great love shown towards you, that you’ve been rescued and redeemed from certain death, becoming members, in righteous standing, in The Company of The Redeemed; and this, through your personal confession of faith and belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, when you place your complete trust and reliance on Him, and even then, it’s not based on anything that’s been generated by your good behavior, actions or deeds, for there’s not any sort of effort, work or accomplishment that you can do or attempt to do, that will suffice; but it is indeed solely based entirely upon His love for you and His free merciful gift of salvation, provided by and through the mighty works of The Lord God Almighty Himself and His Son; He’s done it this way, so that there wouldn’t ever be any personal aggrandizement, by anyone, for there’s no boasting allowed, except in The Lord and what He has done. (Ephesians 2:8-9 PDCP)
