Where would we be without Ephesians 2:8-9? How many lives have been suddenly awakened to God's salvation with the hearing of this verse. John Wesley preached on this text more than any other! Thank God for His amazing grace!
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast."
On another note...we in Christ are all citizens of God! Is there a better residence? I think not.
"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit."
