Works cannot save you - but our salvation IS followed by good works.
Grace - I can't do anything more to make God love me more; I can't do anything to make Him love me less.
Dispensation of Grace -- we are not bound by the law. But where is the grace that changes us? Our sins still break God's heart. We are called to salvation, to be a tool of inspiration & truth with the Holy Spirit living within us.
We must be in God's Word to be grounded strong in our faith.
We are dead to sin - we still sin but the Holy Spirit's work in us convicts us when we do sin.
We want to leave a legacy that we were a person of faith. v10 We are His workmanship created to do good works. The Spirit is pruning us to mature in the Spirit. Walk in Christ - Romans 8 says when you walk in the world, you do works of the flesh.
Sanctification Progress - we are saved & sanctified. But why do some Christians not go beyond their salvation in growth?
v13 As gentiles, we had no hope. With Jesus blood, we were "brought nearer" - the hand ... brought into the hand of God.
Matt 27:46-51 We now have access to the Holy of Holies!
