Saving Grace

Scripture clearly teaches that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ, and not by works of the law. In other words, salvation is a gift. Yep, it’s a freebie! Some fear that if word gets out on this the church will turn into ‘saints gone wild.’ This could very well happen – if the saints have no passion for God! But if such be the case, all the good works in the world won’t improve their standing with the Lord. Even the most spiritual of works amount to nothing if we have not love. (1 Corinthians 13) The ancient Church of Ephesus serves as a perfect example. (See Revelation 2:1-7) They excelled in religious works. But they were also warned that if they didn’t return to their first love, their lamp stand would quickly be removed. This is why we emphasize relationship over religion at Calvary Austin. When you’re in love with God, good works are sure to follow. Those works don’t saves us. They are the fruit of what happens once we truly are saved. It’s the evidence of His Spirit working within us.

“If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” (Galatians 5:18)

So, if you’re thinking about getting wild, get wild for Jesus. Go head over heels for him. And praise Him for His amazing grace!
