EPH 2:8-9 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, that no one would boast.God has been gracious to us, both in saving us and in dealing with us as His beloved children in this dispensation of Grace.

EPH 4 :32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you.
