AMAZING… People, we plan for vacations, we plan what we will eat or what we will wear but how many people plan for eternity?? The biggest decision a person will ever make but most are not ready….
Amen! You have to believe in God with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength. You must also Repent of your sins to be born again. Jesus says if you are not born again we will not inherite the kingdom of God.
John 3.3 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Saved is kind of a loaded word, but i know that the Bible speaks truth. In James we are told by an Apostle of Christ that belief and faith is not all, but that in addition to those two rock solid points, good works are even more important. James 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Also we remember that the Spirit us willing, but the flesh is weak. The flesh is extremely difficult to control(Matthew 26:41). If we can master our physical body, the faith and hope will no doubt bring us all the way to justice, grace, and eternal life. With a loving Heavenly Father and His son, even Jesus Christ. After all, greater live hath no man than this, that He layeth down His life for His friends -John 15:13. By the way, He does LIVE.
Good works will NEVER be more important than faith and justification. Good works follow as fruits of faith, not as something which God requires in order to be saved. Works are important for our fellow man, but not to God in order to be saved. Works come as a result of already being saved. As the great Martin Luther (not King) once said, “Man is saved by faith alone, but faith is never alone.” Never think that your works are somehow earning you points with God; they are NOT. Christ earned all your points for you–trust in that above all else!
I think you’re right on this, but Traver makes some good points as well. What we see so often in today’s world is people who use your reasoning to excuse living in sin. I feel that James was picking up on this. The person who doesn’t live in obedience has no right to claim salvation because if was saved by grace, then that grace would make him God’s workmanship. Of course this doesn’t necessarily take place all overnight, but I think that it will be evident in the person who has repented of his sins and given his heart to Christ.
