Saved Through Faith, Created For Good Works
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
You were saved by grace through faith, and created for good works. Never forget that both faith and works is important. Balance is very very important and faith without works is dead. It is also a great deception. Over and over again the Bible tells us to live right and love others. Grace is definitely not an avenue for us to persist in sin. Judgement begins in the house of God and the Lord will judge His people. Our God is a consuming fire and it is a fearful thing ti fall into the hands of the living God. God will not be mocked and what ever a man sows, a man reaps. The Lord Himself corrects and disciplines His children. He rebukes those that He loves.
We must constantly have faith in what God has done and thank Him for it. We should also remember that continuing to walk in sin means insulting the spirit of grace and looking down on the blood of Jesus.
