What must one do to be saved some ask? "Salvation comes to the one who has faith, but faith involves much more the mere doctrinal beliefs," notes Julian. "Faith is an active trust in God, a dynamic commitment of the heart and the will. True believers totally surrender to God, yielding their lives to Him in obedience." Julian goes on to point out, that true faith must be lived out, and it inevitably leads to good works. Indeed, faith without works is dead. Julian helps the believer reconcile faith and its relation to works, without falling into legalism (works-righteousness) or antinomianism (lawlessness). All those of faith are eternally secure in Christ Jesus.
The continious exhortation throughout the Scriptures is for the believer not to let sin have dominion over his/her life. Invoking the power of the Holy Spirit, and setting our sights on the promises of God, and the free and unmerited grace of God lets us experience the forgiveness that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Paul's exhortation was to "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." Phillipians 2:12-13
Romans 4:6 "Just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: 7 Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; 8 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin."
God's grace is boundless, but Julian makes it clear that a true, perserving saving faith inevitably yields fruits of obedience and true repentant believers will become overwhelmed with guilt and forsake their sins when they walk astray.
powerful exposition of the truth and a book whose worth is infinitely valuable.
