Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the Law: for by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified. Galatians Chapter 2:16.
There are people who think that if they are good people they will have Salvation, but they don’t actively believe in Jesus Christ. This doesn’t necessarily mean they have to attend church regularly. There are some people who attend church regularly that may or may not receive Salvation because of their lifestyle choices. Attending church isn’t a sole indicator of a person’s belief in Christ. That is a personal matter between God and them. Isn’t it neat that God makes all of these decisions on an individual basis?
Anyway, the requirement for Salvation is to believe that Jesus Christ is Savior of all. Now, this isn’t an isolated thing. That belief needs to be an active part of our life. It’s not just something we should think about every six years when a relative dies and you think about them going to heaven to be with God. As Daily Christians, our faith is supposed to be a daily part of our lives. That’s what I mean. This passage is saying that we don’t get Salvation by just following the Law; it’s our faith in Jesus Christ that saves us, but we are still supposed to be examples of how Jesus works in our lives.
Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my walk with Christ, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verses.
