The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. Titus 3:8
We can never earn our way to heaven. Our good works can never make us right with God. And yet good works flow from a right relationship with God. Good works not the means of our salvation. But they are the fruit of it.
