Good works can never earn salvation…

“Good works can never earn salvation; but there is something radically wrong if salvation does not produce good actions.”

From my morning readings in “The Letters to the Galatians and Ephesians”, Daily Study Bible Series, by William Barclay.

We receive salvation as a gift, freely given.  It can never be earned, only accepted.  But once we have it, our love for God and His people should grow until we glory in good works.
