"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, (Ephesians 2:8 KJV).
Multitudes profess a kind of ‘religious’ Christian faith, but there’s a distinction to be made between a merely ‘religious’ faith and a biblical faith that saves. Saving faith happens when we learn to look away from ourselves and place our full confidence in the glorious merits of Christ and the undeserved kindness of God.
The true believer in Jesus understands outside of God's grace there is no power to do anything spiritually good just as Jesus taught his disciples, "…without me ye can do nothing," (John 15:5b KJV).
For this reason, the believer in Jesus is careful not to depend on his own efforts to save himself, but looks to Christ to do for him what he cannot do for himself. Simply put, saving faith becomes the channel whereby God streams his grace and favor toward those who trust and believe His word.
Don't substitute religious faith for saving faith. The Apostle Paul reminds us, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not of works lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV).
