Many today are in a battle when it comes to understanding the grace of God. We are clearly not justified by the law as it says in Titus 3:7 and Gal 5:4 , but the tendency to gravitate to earning salvation by doing something to please God prevails within our conscience.
The difference between a dead work and a living work is defined by a good work produced by grace as apposed to a work that tries to earn grace. I have heard many say that the preaching of grace is the Gospel of license to sin but in Acts 20:24 Paul said, None of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
Grace teaches us the way out of sin not into sin. Titus 2:11-14 ... For the grace of God that bringss salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
So I think that Satan has sowed a viscous seed of discord within the body of Christ to give grace a bad wrap knowing that once one has received the revelation of the gift that Jesus paid for on the cross the scales would tip tremendously toward the Lord Jesus and away from Satan's plan of destruction.
