God’s grace doesn’t only pardon our sins and iniquities, but gives us unmerited favour. That’s why we can only be justified by faith.
God gives His love freely as a free gift through the sacrifice of His son Jesus Christ. We can’t earn a gift. A gift is undeservingly given. We can’t earn a gift because we believe we don’t deserve it. We can only accept it.
And this is the justification, that we accept the free gift of God’s love through His son by faith.For we are saved by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
