Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
We are saved by Grace; we stand in salvation by Grace and we shall also go to heaven by Grace alone.
Salvation is not about our good works and indeed we cannot be saved by our good works (Ephesians 2: 9).
However good works must follow our faith in Christ. This kind of works are called the works of righteousness. They emanate from our relationship with God. Our relationship with father God and his son Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit should give birth to the fruit of the Spirit.
Galatians 5:22- 23 provides for the fruit of the Spirit ‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, :23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.’
In our walk of faith we are to be obedient to the voice of the Spirit to be able to exemplify these virtues every day. The Christian lawyer, Judge, Magistrate, administrator should strive to exemplify these virtues daily and the Spirit of God is willing to teach us on how to walk in his will.
I must boldly say that it is the Spirit of God that works in us, both to will and to do of his good pleasures (Philippians 2: 13).
The Christian is a result of the work of the Holy Spirit, as declared by Titus 3:5 ‘Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.’
