Eph. 2:1-10 God’s grace in context of contrast: His holiness vs. our sinfulness

  6. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 2.
