By Grace are You Saved through Faith

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast… Ephesians 2:8-9

It’s the grace of God and the faith of Christ (Habukkuk 2:4), this is the «gift of God» (God and Christ are the gift). A gift is not a debt or wages; something that is owed someone, it is the love and action of God and Jesus for us, we owed the debt! They paid for it. We did not choose Him, He chose us. We did not love Him, He loved us. «We love him, because he first loved us» 1 John 4:19

It was the loving choice, plan and power of God though and by His Son Jesus to bring this to fulfillment. This should keep us humble and make us grateful to learn of him. We did nothing to deserve it. His love, His power, His choice, His patience and the sacrifice of His Son all are part of the meaning of grace, «the word» is bigger than we can explain… All we can do is accept it «by faith» and even that is not our own «it is the gift of God.»
