Every Christian is to practice good works. What makes our works good and how should we be living a life of good works?
When God graciously saves a person a radical and relational transformation takes place. That person becomes a new creation, able to live a godly life pleasing to God, and they are no longer enemies of God but His forever children!
We see in these verses how we all desperately need to be saved. We cannot save ourselves, but God is merciful and mighty to save.
