Grace, Faith, Salvation, Works, Boasting, Paul, and Jesus

" grace are ye saved through faith...." (Paul; Ephesians 2:8)

Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. (Jesus Christ; Luke 7:50)

Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee. (Jesus Christ; Luke 18:42)

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. (Paul; Ephesians 2:8-9)

For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. (Jesus Christ; Matthew 16:27)

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

Everything Jesus taught to know, believe, and do are the works upon which we will be rewarded. If we do those things and not the things he said not to do, we won't have to worry about hairsplitting what's grace versus faith or how or whether they rank.

If we say we are saved, we will not necessarily do the things we ought.

Say the lines in your heart, and do the right things, per Jesus.
