Good Works and Salvation

Put these two statements together in your heart and mind.

Paul teaches that believers are justified by faith alone and that works do not contribute to or form the basis for their justification.

Good works in Paul are necessary for salvation.

Both of these statements are precisely correct, and when you have a grasp of how they fit together properly, you will be well able to rightly enjoy and proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ!

(Both of these statements are quotes from Thomas R. Schreiner, 40 Questions about Christians and Biblical Law, 143.)
