The Case for Saving Faith

“Ephesians 2:8 records, For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that {faith is} not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. This verse is not referring to a man or woman’s personal faith, and is why the Epistle says, that not of yourselves, but rather it is the gift of God. Then, to what faith is God referring? He is referring to the faith of Jesus Christ; we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law- Galatians 2:16; this is our own personal, precious gift with which to begin enjoying our Christian life.”  ~LMJ~
