For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -
and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -
not by works, so that no one can boast.
I do believe that if you have faith then it will show in your works. I believe that works are the result of your faith and that without works faith is dead.
As the body without the spirit is dead,
so faith without deeds is dead.
While using the Next Blog feature (click the Next Blog button in the top right corner) earlier today, I came across A Follower's Journal by J.M. McCarter. He has written an interesting post about Grace.
