If one goes to Ephesians Chapter 2 it explains that it is ” By Grace Through Faith and later by your good works.” I had a minister explain it to me and another church member.
Verses 8-10- “”for by grace you have been saved through faith, and not that of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
We are granted salvation through Faith but also for our works, if one reads the rest of the scripture.
Even those this little quote is not from the Bible, I was given a cross by a dear relative. It tells it quite well. On one side it says, “What you are is God’s gift to you.” Turn it over on the back and it says “What you make of yourself is your gift to God.” This is a quote by Abbey Press.
