The Root of our Salvation

  1. Faith in Christ alone
  2. Without our works

The Fruit of our Salvation

  1. Out of Gratitude
  2. Giving us Assurance
  3. Bearing Witness to the world

 

Question 33
Should those who have faith in Christ seek their salvation through their own works, or anywhere 

else?

No, they should not, as everything necessary to salvation

is found in Christ. To seek salvation through good works

is a denial that Christ is the only Redeemer and Savior.

 

Question 34
Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through

Christ alone, must we still do good works and

obey God’s Word?

Yes, because Christ, having redeemed us by his blood,

also renews us by his Spirit; so that our lives may show

love and gratitude to God; so that we may be assured

of our faith by the fruits; and so that by our godly

behavior others may be won to Christ.
