"For it is by grace...."

Ephesians 2:8-10  8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

 

Hmmmm, not by Works but by Grace?  Nothing that I can do to "earn" salvation?  After all, I'm a good guy, nice to people, and give to charity.  Isn't that enough "to get me in"?  My belief is that if one is saved by the grace of God, through faith, he/she will live a life of good works.  Each person has God given talents and these talents can be used for His glory through each of us. Many good deeds are done quietly, often not in public view.  If the Spirit is in us, the light will shine through without a doubt.  "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith .... it is the gift of God".  No, it is not by works, but works will happen naturally.  And you know what?  There will be an abundant return.  God will not disappoint you.
