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.
Nevertheless, many even of the authorities believed in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not confess it, so that they would not be put out of the synagogue;
If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life.He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.
Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect,
that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
The saying is trustworthy, for:
If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful—
for he cannot deny himself.
Saved by Grace,
