Ephesians 2:8-9 - God's Grace

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


I love this verse soo much. It was one of the first verses that I learnt when God started getting me more close and interested in Him. I saw it for the first time on "Way of the Master" on JCTV
The other guy (not Kirk) I believe gave this as a very good part of a come-back combo for Jehovah's witnesses (who wrongly believe they'll guarantee a spot in Heaven by works)*.
And some days or weeks later, one of the pastors preached and referenced this verse. I was ecstatic, as anyone should be, that you know a Bible verse by heart.


If this is your first time seeing this beautiful Bible verse about salvation, I pray that it resounds and sticks with you. 
Memorize it. Live it. Tell it.
We are all saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is a free gift from God that nobody can earn by works or action.




*
Faith without works is dead (James 2:26). True.
But work becomes an issue when it is seen as as how to earn your way to Heaven. You do not earn your way to Heaven. You can't. Only Jesus can and He did when He died and rose on the third day. It's now a free gift.
Question now is: Do you accept it?
