Faith or Works?
"The most significant discovery of the human potential movement is that you can change your beliefs through your actions as readily as you can change you actions through your beliefs." I actually don't know who to give credit for this quote but it helped me realize why our works are so important. No, our works cannot save us; only Christ's grace through His atonement can. But our works help increase our belief and ultimate our faith in Him, and then our increased faith can motivate our good works even further thus drawing us closer to Him. It is a beautiful cycle.
