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 – consider this; those who exercise their faith and work for the Lord will be exalted. it does not matter how the world chooses to regard or define or label you. It does not matter who or what you were previously. What matters is whether you are willing to Do the work. We are justified by our work. People will always boast about their faith. But, those people generally aren’t working. the Lord blesses the work, not the words. it’s not about Simply being faithful; it’s about being a faithful worker.
Faith Is The Substance – Hebrews 11
