Washed, Sanctified and Justified
in the Sacraments of the Catholic Church.
You said,Terry July 19, 2008 at 2:22 AMHi Steve, we are really saved by the Lord Jesus alone – not the Lord Jesus plus are own works .
However if a person has faith then good works will be present.
Please consider the following passage and my bried comment.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
What Paul is saying is that if God did the greater that is – saved us when we were powerless while we were ungodly sinners and his enemies then how much more shall we be saved now we are his children and part of His family.
Having become a child of God,
having been Adopted by Him, having been joined to Christ and transferred into the Kingdom of God’s beloved Son do you think its possible that one day He could disown you, kick you out of his family and transfer you back to the kingdom of darkness. It was unthinkable for Paul.
Every blessing Terry
