Without Works

James 2:20 teaches us that, “faith without works is dead”. The passage is warning against those who say they believe in Jesus but have no spiritual transformation in their life. We are not saved by works but good works are the results of our born-again faith in Christ. In the Old Testament before Jesus, Abraham was obedient to God and saved by it. When Jesus was on earth He followed God 100% not just faith. The Lord kept God’s laws and fulfilled what the scriptures promised. When we sin we are forgiven because of Christ’s perfect sacrifice. Paul in Romans 6:1 warns, “…Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”. We should all be aware of our sins and do our best not to fall short but when we do pick our feet back up and stay the course following God. Jesus is the God of good and does no evil. When we do good things we should do them for God’s glory not our own. It’s important to know that God is good and to keep Jesus as our source for salvation and not our own deeds. God desires for everyone to be saved knowing that tomorrow Jesus might come back. God is inviting everyone to repent so that when they die they can go to Heaven. Praise God for His grace and mercy. Amen
