John 5:24

““Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”

‭‭John‬ ‭5:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

It is by faith we are saved. When our faith is placed in Jesus Christ we are removed from judgement and have everlasting life. So many times throughout the Church age false teachers have come forth distorting the grace of God.

Some have gone the route of legalism in which they have required works for salvation. Others have gone the other route and have separated the grave of God from holiness. In essence they have turned the grave of God into a license to sin.

But it is through faith alone that we are saved. If we have come to authentic faith it should impact how we live our lives. Because authentic faith requires us to make Jesus Lord. That means our lives no longer belong to us, they belong to the Lord. An outward sign of true salvation is the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
