Salvation, grace and the evangelical perspective


#1

How do these Bible verses relate to our perception of sola gratia and the evangelicals notion of salvation?

Rom 11:6[size=2] And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

(1.) Favour (2 Tim. 1:9).

(2.) God’s forgiving mercy
(Eph. 2:5).

(3.) The gospel as distinguished from the law (John
1:17; Rom. 6:14; 1 Pet. 5:12).

(4.) Gifts freely bestowed by God
(Rom. 15:15; 1 Cor. 15:10; Eph. 3:8).

(5.) Christian virtues
(2 Cor. 8:7; 2 Pet. 3:18).

(6.) The glory hereafter to be revealed (1 Pet.
1:13).
