(Eph 2:4 ESV) – But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,
(Eph 2:5 ESV) – even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved–
(Eph 2:6 ESV) – and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
(Eph 2:7 ESV) – so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
(Eph 2:8 ESV) – For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
(Eph 2:9 ESV) – not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
