8God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
The gift of salvation is a grace gift, entirely free for us and it was paid for by Jesus. He died on the cross that we might have access to an eternal life with God. We are in the family, we are eternally saved, He is our Father and we are His children. Believe in Jesus and you shall be saved.
