By Grace Through Faith
A Sermon on Ephesians 2:8-10
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (ESV)
A need for a true understanding of what makes a Christian; salvation is unmerited favour; man cannot be saved by works; the example of Paul; the controversy over verse 7; and the two differing views explained; faith is not the cause of salvation; it is only the instrument; the impossibility of man saving himself.
