Salvation By Grace

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”
(Ephesians 2:8)

——————–

All of things spoken concerning man’s salvation, one question stands out more than any other … who gets the glory for that salvation?

Is the glory given to a spiritually dead sinner because somehow he was able to perceive the depth of his own depravity, work out a perfect righteousness before the holy law of God, and then keep himself secure by perfect faith?

…or is the glory, honor, and praise for that salvation given unto Him who saved His people apart from any work that they could do to merit a righteousness before God Almighty?

The Scripture declares salvation to be by GRACE through faith; and that (faith) not of ourselves: it is the gift of God.
