Some believers have so perverted the doctrine of salvation by grace alone that they speak disparagingly of obedience and good works. They say that all our sins—past, present, and future—have already been forgiven. When we sin, they say, we have no need to repent and confess our sins because they are all forgiven, even before we commit them. But they forget that Jesus’s message to 5 of the 7 churches was “repent” (Rev. 2:5, 16, 21-22, 3:3, 19). Moreover, the foremost marks of saving grace are obedience and outward holiness. The gracious promises of Christ do not diminish the necessity of good works (Eph. 2:8-10). Our initial salvation was by grace without works (we had none to give) Rom. 3:28. But final salvation will not be without obedience (James 2:22); Obedience and ongoing repentance are the only evidences of regeneration; and without them, we have no evidence that we’re saved.
