Q. My question is about faith vs works. It seems like such a fine line. I am born again. I know that Jesus did all the work at the cross. I know that nothing I do can save me. Jesus alone is my Savior. However, I can’t help but feel like I have to “be good” and “obey.” Is that the same thing as works?
A. What you are experiencing is not the same as “good works” as we think of them.
It’s the prompting of the Holy Spirit guiding you into behavior that’s pleasing to the Lord as a sign of your gratitude for the free gift of salvation.
As you choose to follow His guidance you will experience a greater intimacy with the Lord and your life will be more abundantly blessed (Romans 8:5-6).
