Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love
he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--
to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.: We are not saved by our works, we are saved by grace. Grace is a beautiful gift that was freely given to us by Jesus, the moment we accepted Him into our hearts. Grace was shown to us, when we took our first step of faith. There is nothing you can do to save yourself, only the grace of our Saviour, and your faith can save you. The best gift ever given to me, was the amazing grace that my Saviour poured out upon me.
