I was once, at times, a sort of intermittent travelling evangelist.
At one time, I was leading a team in a village near Leicester.
One day a man came up to me in the shopping street and said
"I am saved by grace. My place in heaven is assured."
A strange start to a conversation even on mission.
I said "So what are you doing about it?"
He then got into a tizz about works and grace
and started quoting Corinthians and such things
so we had a brief but lively chat outside the NatWest Bank.
Of course he was right about salvation by grace,
but it does seem that it should lead somewhere.
Grace without response seems somewhat empty.
After all, those early disciples seemed to work their socks off;
worked themselves to death in some cases.
