faith and works

Calvin, “It is… faith alone which justifies and yet faith which justifies is not alone.” Enough said…

Nearly finished “The Glory of Christ” by Peter Lewis and can’t believe I’ve not read it before! Great book I highly reccomend it for a massive and thorough view of Christ. I have often wondered about how we best explain the fact that we are saved by grace alone through the gift of faith (Eph 2:8) and how that marries with the teaching of James which suggests works is at least an evidence of true faith. Then reading the end of Lewis’ book concerning judgment of works at the second coming I came accross a peach from Mr. Calvin whom Lewis quotes: “It is… faith alone which justifies and yet faith which justifies is not alone.” Enough said.
