Our good works glorify the Lord (Matt. 5:16). Everything we do in His name increases other people’s awareness of Him.” – Charles Stanley via Anthony Vance’s Twitter
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” -John 15:5
If apart from the vine a branch can do no good works (John 15:5), then you can’t get into the vine by doing good works.
