James 2:24-26 – Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Meditation – those who apply their faith and work for the Lord are exalted. it doesn’t matter how the world chooses to label you. Do the work. We are justified by our work. People boast about their faith all the time. However, it’s not about being faithful; it’s about being a faithful worker.
