Did Jesus and Paul preach the same thing?

Most of the new testament was written by Paul.  And it is through Paul's writing that we clearly understand that we are saved by God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

Ephesians 2:8-9

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

But how come Jesus never clearly preached that message during his stay on Earth?  Did Jesus and Paul preach the same thing?

My mindset for 2015

I like making new mindsets every start of the year.  Start of the year is my clean slate, fresh start.  These mindsets are in my prayers everyday.  They align my heart and mind to God.  This coming year, these are the mindsets that I will carry.

1.)  Only Jesus will truly satisfy.

2.)  Remove all encumbrances and the sin that so easily entangles.  Run the race. (Hebrews 12:1)

3.)  Be thankful, enjoy what God has given me today.  Live in the present.  (Ecclesiastes 5:12,18-20)

4.)  Trust that God has great plans for me.  (Proverbs 3:5-6)
