Grace is not Works

Rom 4:4 Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
One cannot earn what has been gifted or inherited. If one tries to earn it, it is not a gift or an inheritance. Grace cannot be earned. Eph 2:8 tells us For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Salvation cannot be earned by anything we do.
If one attempts to earn salvation or any part of it, grace is no longer in operation. All the benefits of salvation are by grace through faith. So rest from the hard work of earning or deserving all the things the Father has freely given.
