Did Jesus Teach Salvation by Works

This book investigates the role of works in salvation in the Synoptic Gospels. Jesus was all too aware of people who claimed to believe in Him and yet proved to be not truly born again (e.g., John 2:23-25; 8:31-46). A profession of faith made at some point during one's life is no guarantee that heaven awaits that person. Such professions or conversion experiences must be followed by changed lives if faith is to be shown to be genuine saving faith. Hence Jesus teaches that regardless of one's profession, if one does not demonstrate a changed life produced by God, one will not enter into heaven. Such a judgment will be made when Jesus returns and judges every person according to his or her "works". While this may seem contradictory to some more well-known passages ruling out the role of works in salvation (e.g., Rom 3:21-4:25; Gal 2:16-21; Eph 2:8-9), there is every good reason to understand that Jesus' teachings complement such passages. The works that admit one into heaven are not works produced by the flesh before conversion but works produced by God after conversion. They will fundamentally be characterized by a life of discipleship, love for others, and endurance in faith and obedience, and will therefore serve to confirm that one indeed did have a relationship with God during one's life. Hence Jesus did teach salvation by works. However God is the one who produces the works and they occur after conversion. Thus salvation is not one's initial conversion but one's final entrance into heaven.

Finding Yourself in His Grand Design God's plan is exciting and timely and God's Word is relevant today! Henrietta Mears' vital concern was for people - that they might have a comprehensive grasp of the Bible and realize that God has a wonderful plan to reveal to each one who seeks Him. In God's Plan, you'll discover that God does have a plan, and His plan is eternal. His plan predates creation, and continues forever, without limits. The essence of God's plan is love, pure unrequited love, by the Almighty God for people. This love prompted God to create the heavens and the earth, to select a chosen people, to reveal the plan of salvation, to establish the church, to direct the activities of that which He has created, and one day to return in glory.

The Blueprint A blueprint is a guide for making something. It is a design or pattern that can be followed. When we sit down to build something, we normally draw up a blueprint and then follow the design carefully. A blueprint helps you determine what to do. In this manual "The House of God" our goal is to discover God's blueprint for local churches and local communities of believers. We also share practical ways to build local churches according to God's blueprint. Our goal is not to present one set of "methods" and "techniques", but rather discover what God wants the local church to be. Each one of us will have to make our own journey with God as we develop our local congregations according to God's blueprint. Each one of us will have to discover our own expression of this blueprint in our local communities. Since God is a creative God, He has many ways and many expressions of His blueprint. The one common denominator is that we are all pursuing the same blueprint for each local church. The blueprint describes God's design. It is God's original intent. It highlights main characteristics. It describes key features. It points to important focus areas. When we follow His blueprint we know we are moving in the right direction and will eventually arrive at the right destination for our local churches. Your Ministry And God's Blueprint Regardless of what your ministry is inside or in relation to the local church, it is important that what you are doing, is aligned to God's blueprint for His people. As a pastor/Senior pastor, your responsibility is to ensure that the local church is growing and developing in all dimensions according to God's blueprint. As an itinerant evangelist, teacher, prophet or apostle whenever you minister to a congregation, your goal is to help impart and increase the congregation in some way according to God's design for the local church. Whether you serve as a youth pastor, worship leader, children's church, women's ministry, men's ministry, small groups, etc. you are working towards establishing God's blueprint in the lives of His people in that local church. Follow God's design closely and you will not go wrong!

What is God asking of me? How do I know if this is really of God and not simply my imagination? Should I follow my head or my heart? Discerning God's will is an ongoing process – not a static, one-time decision. Albert Haase, OFM, scholar of Christian spirituality and spiritual mentor to hundreds of people, reminds you that your ordinary life is the megaphone through which God communicates to you and to the world. Fr. Haase is known for offering clear, practical spiritual advice. This book is short, concise, practical, and written with real life examples and reflection questions, making the ancient practice of discernment appealing and understandable. "Albert Haase OFM reminds us that each of us is called to speak an ever deepening yes to God with our lives. The text centers around the most basic questions of the spiritual life: what are we living for, what keeps us from being fully alive? Haase offers a faithful and faith-filled reflection on both the simplicity and the complexity of Christian discernment and discipleship." — Most Reverend Donald Bolen, Bishop of Saskatoon "SAYING YES 'scratches where we itch.' Albert Haase, OFM has provided a blueprint and road map for discovering all the places, all the spaces and all the faces through which God speaks to us.

Among Wolves Bible Study Book is an eight-session study that includes individual-study opportunities for each day of the week, applicable Scripture, "How to Use This Study," and group-discussion guides. Our world is changing. Cultures are colliding. Our cities and neighborhoods are brimming with vibrant diversity. And while communities may have embraced this change, many churches have not. In Matthew 10, Jesus challenged His disciples by telling them, "Behold, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves." And He is calling us to do the same--to make disciples wherever we live, work, and play. Among Wolves is an eight-week Bible study about disciple-making in the city. This Bible study explores eight movements in the Book of Matthew that help create cultures of disciple-making in our changing environments. This resource is a field guide to help you discover God's vision for your family, develop a strategy for discipleship, and deploy to the mission field that is your neighborhood. The aims of Among Wolves are fourfold: 1. Gospel Centered Among Wolves aims to help participants develop a deeper devotion for the person and work of Christ through His Word. Throughout the Bible Study Book, we will allow the Gospel of Matthew to be our guide. This gospel begins with the burden to establish God's tangible presence and ends with a confirmation of His presence and commission to continue the family's business. 2. Local Church Based Among Wolves aims to equip participants to make disciples within the context of the local church. Urban practitioners will develop an understanding of the identity of the church as family, allowing that to shape the activities of their local gathering. This concept can be applied in multiple contexts, such as Bible study groups, missional communities, and small groups--anywhere you seek to co-labor with other believers. 3. Disciple Making Oriented Among Wolves aims to equip participants to see disciple-making not as a ministry but as the ministry of the local church. 4. Urban Focused Among Wolves aims to help participants navigate the beauty and complexity, the density and diversity that city life brings. Features: - Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content - Eight small-group sessions that walk through disciple-making in the Gospel of Matthew - Individual-study opportunities for ongoing spiritual growth - Group and personal components Benefits: - Develop a better understanding of discipleship as Jesus taught us. - Discover the blueprint for disciple-making in the Gospel of Matthew. - Acquire a discipleship strategy applicable to families. - Learn to navigate today's diversity for the sake of disciple-making. - Equip yourself to make disciples in an urban context.
