It was His mercy, not our accomplishments....
Ephesians 3:5-7 -- He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us
through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously
through Jesus Christ our Saviour, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs
having the hope of eternal life.
