Works

Ephesians 2:8-10 (ESV)

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,

9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.


1 Corinthians 15:58 (ESV)

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

 


Revelation 22:12 (KJV)

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 

  • “Works” are defined as the course of one’s life, the product of one’s life, the things we think, say, and do.

  • Therefore, works are related to Christian service, obedience, and spiritual growth.


Justification Salvation

John 1:12 (ESV)
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,


Discipleship

John 8:31 (ESV)

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,  

  • A disciple is someone who is committed to following the teaching of his master to some degree –follow me”.


Matthew 16:24 (ESV)

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

 

John 21:18-19 (ESV)

18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.”

19 (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”
