Someone commented on my blog and I want to show you again how wrong the "no works" proponents are.
I need to add that the "works" we do as Christians is only Christ "working" through us. It is a partnership. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Amos 3:3 and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 Jesus is the Lord OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS Jer 23:6, 33:16
Christ said we can do NOTHING without Him (John 15:5). Grace is God's life in us. And faith in this is us understanding the reality of that fact! We are saved by Grace through Faith. And that faith and grace is a gift from God. it's all the Lord's glory. But we can do as Johah did and run away from the Lord. Yes we can! But what happened to Jonah? He received a revelation of hell and he repented. "I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever:" Jonah 2:6 Read the Book of Jude and see what was written for OUR admonition.
"The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Rev 4:10, 11
