Ephesians 2 paints a very clear picture of our salvation. The apostle Paul tells the church at Ephesus that they had been spiritually dead, but God made them alive by His great mercy and grace. Paul emphasizes that this salvation is completely accomplished by God and not at all based on any good work of man. But what place then do our good works serve in our salvation? The text tells us that works are the very purpose of God in us, that we were “created unto good works” and that He has “ordained that we should walk in them.” Click here to listen to Rev. David Overway provide a thorough survey of the believer’s ability to perform good works and the vital role they serve in his life.
