If we are not careful, we can take either faith or grace to the extreme. Paying too much attention to one without relating it to the other is harmful to us. Faith, not our actions, is the victory that overcomes the world. Without a solid understanding of the need to live in the balance between faith and grace, we can confuse the works of faith with works of the law. God’s grace has made available to us everything we need to lead godly lives, but we only see the manifestations of those things through our faith.
