A full salvation through grace expressed in works

If salvation comes through God's grace alone, what is the place of works in the Christian's life? Is there no need to prove the reality of that grace in our lives?

We all want to be saved. That is to say, we all have troubles of some sort—uncertainties, sorrows, sins, sicknesses, employment or financial difficulties, relationship problems—that we would love to be free of.

But how many of us have thought of the Bible as a source of freedom? The salvation offered in the Bible is radically different from that offered by the physical sciences, hygiene, medicine, philosophy, or psychology. Why? For one reason, it is spiritually founded, based on God, while they—one way or another—are based on matter. Another reason is that it improves us mentally, morally, and spiritually while it heals us physically. Finally, when God heals us the healing is permanent.
