For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God… Ephesian 2:8
Paul tells us in Ephesians that grace is the free gift of God by which we are saved. We are saved by grace which is an offer made for free without any obligation. However, the gift of salvation by grace isn’t just applied to every person automatically. It has to be received and God tells us that we receive the gift of God’s grace through faith.
