The Byproducts of Good Works and Righteousness

"Truly, if faith is there, a believer cannot hold back... He breaks out into good works." ~ Martin Luther
"We are never saved by our good works, but we are not saved apart from good works. Out of our saving faith in Jesus Christ, there springs immediately goodness and righteousness. Spring is not brought by flowers, but you cannot have spring without flowers. It isn't my righteousness that saves, but the salvation I have received brings righteousness." ~ A.W. Tozer
