I’m taking an apologetics class at church. One of the counterarguments that we discussed was that some believe we could be saved by good works. While I don’t believe this, it was interesting to think about at the moment. I’ll share what I believe later in the blog. I started to think of how many works would it require for me to feel like I’m saved and secure.
Would I have to repeat new works daily or would my works from yesterday be enough? ?
And then I thought about how big my good works would have to be for me to be saved? Could small good works save me too? ? Or do I have to go big or stay at home? These are all rhetorical questions that don’t require an answer. Lol.
But the cool thing about reading and learning is I bring my questions to God and allow him and the word of God to define my standard.
All of that to say, I’m so glad that my good works don’t save me and that I’m saved by faith through God’s unmerited grace.
It’s nothing that I can do to earn his grace, I don’t deserve his grace, and yet he gives it to me freely. And for that I’m grateful! ??????
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” Ephesians 2:8 KJV
