Now Paul presents the simplicity of salvation and the results of that salvation both down here and up there.

You are saved by grace

    1. II Cor 8:9
    2. Phil 2:5-11
    3. Rom 10:4
    4. God knows our condition in sin; so he sent Christ to fulfill righteousness under the penalty of our sin, I Pet 2:24

You are saved by faith

    1. Rom 1:17
    2. Your faith is in the finished work of what Christ did at Calvary, Rom 10:5-10
    3. The lost don’t see grace for eternal life as a present possession; see it as a temporary state with the final gift of eternal life after death
    4. If that is true, then you are saved by works
    5. Rom 11:6, it’s one or the other: grace or works

You are not saved by works

    1. Tit 3:5
    2. Gal 2:16
    3. Rom 4:5

You are saved by a gift

    1. Jn 3:16, Jesus
    2. Rom 5:15-18, free gift
    3. Gift of righteousness, v. 17
    4. I Jn 5:20

Once you have grace, the gift of Jesus and eternal life, then you work

    1. Phil 2:12-13
    2. Titus, good works
    3. Following salvation

The grace doesn’t stop at death but goes on through eternity (v. 7)
