Christianity is a Religion of Works

Christianity is also a religion of works just not our own works. Only by the work of Jesus Christ are we saved. Only through faith in the sinless life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection can anyone be saved. Jesus saves us, which then results in our good works what Jesus also often refers to as the “fruit” of his already accomplished work of salvation and us.  This is a vastly different way of looking at the world than any other religion. Our works don’t justify us. Rather our works are an act of worship to a God who has already made us new.
