John Wesley on Faith As a Free Gift of God

‘For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves.’ Of yourselves cometh neither your faith nor your salvation: ‘it is the gift of God’; the free, undeserved gift; the faith through which ye are saved, as well as the salvation which He of His own good pleasure, His mere favour, annexes thereto. That ye believe, is one instance of His grace; that believing ye are saved, another.

John Wesley on Ephesians 2:8, in “Salvation By Faith”, a sermon preached June 18th, 1738 at St. Mary’s, Oxford.
