One of his favorite verses is "for by grace we have been saved through faith, and that not of ourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, that no one would boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them." (Ephesians 2:8-10)
