The Root of our Salvation
- Faith in Christ alone
- Without our works
The Fruit of our Salvation
- Out of Gratitude
- Giving us Assurance
- Bearing Witness to the world
Should those who have faith in Christ seek their salvation through their own works, or anywhere
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.
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.
