What is the antecedent to the TOUTO (neuter) in Eph 2:8?

Is it referring to the idea of SWTHRION (neut. salvation, saving power)
implied by the SESWSMENOI in the preceeding phrase? To paraphrase then:
"for it is by grace you are being saved through faith, and this
(salvation) is not of yourselves..."

Tnanks for your help.
