Read Ephesians 2:8-10

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Ephesians 2:8 (NLT)

Faith is a gift of God’s grace. It is not due to anything I have done or can do. This is not something we just pay lip service to, and then go on our merry way being good in our own strength. Rather, we must always remain in awe of the fact that when we were helpless and guilty, God alone made us right with him again.
