I didn’t say they were. The verse was cited to show that sanctification (cleansing of the heart) is impossible without faith, which goes back to the larger question you asked, which was “Where does it say that ‘everything’ we receive from God is through faith?”
MT1926, my point in citing 1 Peter 1:5 was not to say that “works have zero value.” Where are you getting this from? Not from me. Once again, you asked me, “Where does it say that ‘everything’ we receive from God is through faith?”
To answer that question, I wrote that Scripture shows that we can have conditional security of our salvation in Christ. 1 Peter 1:5 says this, “who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
When we possess genuine faith, we can rest secure in the promises of God We need not fear whether we are truly saved or not. We can have peace and rest in Christ, knowing that we are “guarded through faith for a salvation to be revealed in the last time.”
Notice that I labeled this “conditional security.” If you continue to read, the writer states, “so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
Once again, this was part of an answer to your question “Where does it say that ‘everything’ we receive from God is through faith?” In response, I said, one thing we receive by faith is conditional security.
The reason I cited Romans 11:20 is because it talks about our security in Christ through faith but it also cautions that such security is conditional on our faith. We forfeit our security in Christ through unbelief (which broadly incorporates disobedience since if we truly believed Christ we would also obey him).
