For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God,
I love the flow of this verse.
It is by grace that we have been saved. No doubts about it. It wasn't us, it was simply and purely by God's grace.
But wait, wait... here is our part: "through faith"
Oh, "and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."
The emphasis keeps flowing away from us and toward God and his kindness - his grace. Even our salvation isn't about us. It is about Christ.
