James 2:24 KJV – Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
Everyone talks about faith. Everyone has a story about how they were in need of something and, because they were faithful, the Lord delivered. But, very seldom do people talk about the work they’ve done in faith. The bible is replete with examples of faith; and, every example involved work. Proof of faith requires that we become actively involved in receiving those things we desire. those who exercise their faith and work for the Lord have always been justified. Never forget; the rain falls on the just as well as the unjust. If we count ourselves as faithful, yet never have any work to show for it, chances are we’re simply receiving the benefit of someone else’s rainfall. Faith PLUS WORKS.
By Faith – Hebrews 11
