In his letter to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul made it clear that believers are not saved by good works; rather, we are created to do them in God's name. This important distinction goes to the heart of the Christian experience. As Alistair Begg explains, sinners are resurrected from spiritual death and saved only because of God's grace through faith. Good works, then, are not required for salvation, but are the evidence that salvation has truly taken root.
1And you were dead in the trespasses and sins
