"For by GRACE are you saved through faith, and not of yourselves, it is the GIFT of God.." many will quote this verse of Eph.2:8 and tell you the law of God has been abolished.
But Jesus answered the young man who asked Him how he might have eternal life, by saying, "IF YOU WILL ENTER INTO LIFE, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS" (Mat.19:17).
Many say LAW and GRACE do not mix! Is that true? How can we reconcile what Christ said to the rich young man, and what Paul wrote to the Ephesians? Was Jesus and Paul of different opinions as to HOW a person is SAVED...?

ALL OF GOD'S WORD
 
The verse in Eph.2:8 is an inspired part of God's revelation to man -but so also is Mat.19:17! Do you believe what Paul wrote to the Ephesianchurch? Do you believe what Jesus said to the young man? If you believethat the Bible is INSPIRED, your answer must be a resounding YES!Jesus said elsewhere that the scripture can not be BROKEN - in otherwords, there cannot be any CONTRADICTIONS in the word of God. Theverse, "For by grace are you saved" is true - very true. No one can savethemselves by their WORKS. You can work, perform, DO THINGS for athousand life times, and still you will never WORK your way into eternallife. Your WORKS, of themselves, will NOT save you.God's salvation is a gift - it comes by the way of GRACE throughfaith. But can God's grace be turned into something He never intended?Yes indeed! Jude wrote towards the end of the first century A.D. that,"....when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, itwas needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you shouldearnestly contend for the faith that was ONCE DELIVERED unto thesaints(even
 BEFORE 
the end of the first century the way of salvation wasbeing corrupted) for there are CERTAIN MEN crept in UNAWARES(they looked like Christians but were deceivers)....UNGODLY men(notspeaking the truth of God's word ) TURNING ( changing, doing somethingother than what God intended) the GRACE of God intoLASCIVIOUSNESS(a license to sin)...." verse 3,4. God's grace was beingABUSED, twisted, turned into something other than what God said it was.
SOMETHING YOU CAN EARN!
 
Salvation comes as a GIFT - by grace -given to us by the Father. Ourworks, our deeds cannot EARN us the right to eternal life. But there issomething we can most definitely EARN - by what we have performed.Turn to Rom.6:23 and read there what it is we can EARN, "For thewages(the payment we are rightly due because we've worked for it) of SINis DEATH....." What we have earned by sinning is DEATH - that is theeternal death, the SECOND death(Rev.20:4-~6,14-15), from which there isno resurrection.
