“Work OUT your salvation with fear and trembling”
All other religions except Christianity and even a couple cults that call themselves Christian, see life as a process by which we work FOR our salvation.
Not according to Jesus.
With our free-will decision making ability, anything good that we do for the glory of Jesus comes naturally with salvation. It is God who works in us to give us the disposition that will allow us to choose good over evil.
Therefore we must not boast as though those good works are from ourselves. Nor should we think we become acceptable to God because of good works.
