Why Faith?

By Grace you have been saved through faith... Ephesians 2:8-9

Why is faith the instrument that God uses to bring us to salvation? 
Why not love? Joy? Wisdom? Contentment?

I appreciated Wayne Grudem's answer to this question:

"...Because faith is the one attitude of the heart that is the exact opposite of depending on ourselves. When we come to Christ in faith we essentially say: I give up. I will not depend on myself and my own good works any longer. I know that I can never make myself righteous before God... Faith is the exact opposite of trusting in ourselves."
