By Grace

We are saved by grace, not by our own effort. It does not come from ourselves. Our salvation is a gift from God. The word saved in this verse is a Greek word that embraces all of Jesus’ kingdom work: saving, healing, delivering, protecting, making whole. We aren’t required to heal ourselves, to deliver ourselves, to save ourselves. We are required to have faith and allow God to do His job in and through us.
