Saved only by the mercy of God

We are called to do good deeds, but it is not through good deeds that we are saved.  If we were to be saved by our deeds, then it would not have been necessary for the Lord to come down and save us.  We are saved only by the mercy of God.  It is the Grace of God that saves.  The Lord saves.  We can get a reward for our good deeds, but salvation is from God.
