"God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God."
Ephesians 2:8-9 NLT
This verse tells how we are saved and made right with God. It is not something we can earn or deserve, but it is a generous and merciful gift from God. It is a gift because He loves you! We receive this gift through faith, when we trust in, believe in, and do our best to obey God. He will cover our shortcomings!
