My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
This verse sums up the Evangelical view on the role of grace and works in our salvation. I work hard to bring about Christ’s kingdom in the world around me. I work hard to strengthen my own sanctification. I work hard to live a life of love. But my hope for salvation is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
Works are the fruit of my faith, but the only thing that makes me worthy to be in God’s presence and escape the justice that is due to me, is the blood of Jesus. I’m learning that LDS don’t have any differing view.
