"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast."
By the grace of God, through His remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ, you are saved. You are actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life through faith. This salvation is not through your own effort, but it is the undeserved, gracious gift of God. This is also not as a result of your works, nor your attempts to keep the Law, so that no one will be able to boast or take credit in any way for his salvation.
This Holy Week, let us remember Jesus' death on the cross. Through His death, we are washed by His blood. It is His gift to us. Let us receive this gift, the gift of eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
