    Hebrews 13:5 This is a great verse and statement made in God's Word for new testament believers. It also is a verse that needs little interpretation. It says what it means and means what it says. Its a promise to ever believer as well as a command concerning our speech and manner of life.

    HEBREWS 13:9 be not carried about with diverse and strange doctrines for it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace not with meats which have not profited them TITUS 2:11 for the grace of GOD that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men --2:12-- teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we should live soberly righteously and godly in this present world

    Vicki; You are right; however, if there's really a work of grace wrought in our heart, it must also then reflect in our way of life, our character, our works! While the Law exposes the sinner and condemns; isn't it by the light of God's righteousness, which is to be the mark of His people; to love God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind and strength; and our neighbor as ourselves?
  • Rich
    Read the Holy Scriptures and He the holy spirit will guide you in the name of the Holy Father , The Word, and The Holy Spirit, Amen...
  • A disciple
    Vicki (cont.); As far as whether we are saved by grace "OR" works of the Law; we know that we wouldn't even have access or right to lift up our face before God without Jesus: and all that we are and all that we do is by His grace and because of His mercy and dying on the cross for us! But we are saved for a reason! To show forth the Law of God BY OUR CHANGED LIFE, by the Spirit of Grace and Truth!
