You had absolutely nothing do with it! How often do we think more highly of ourselves than we should? When it comes to being born and being born again…we had nothing to do with it.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— Ephesians 2:8
It’s our job to receive and walk in the gift that’s been given. We can’t work our way into salvation or into good graces. Grace has paid the price, and by faith we can accept the gift freely given.
