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. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.  (Ephesians 2:8-10 KJV)

 Our salvation is not because some how you are better or you have done something to make yourself acceptable to God. But it is because God showed His GRACE (undeserved merit) toward us while we were yet Sinners… Christ paid it all for those who call upon the name of the Lord.
