This means salvation is not something we deserve or earn, but something that God has done for us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. begin with verse 8: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Notice it: we are saved by grace. Grace by definition is free. But the apostle goes on to say that it is by grace through faith. And, he says, that that faith .
