If anyone says that they have faith and they don’t have works, you must remember that faith without works is dead. Was Abraham not judged by works? When Jesus was on the earth how much did He gain by faith alone? Through, faith Christ kept God’s righteous commandments and fulfilled what the scriptures said would happen. We also know that our faith must be in God and not in man, for man dies but God lives forever and is truly the Lord of good and does not do any evil. We know that our faith and works must be through God and in Him, for all things are possible with God. However, even if you do good works and have strong faith you must accept Jesus as your Savior. For our salvation must happen now for tomorrow Jesus might come. If, Jesus comes back tomorrow and we haven’t repented and asked Jesus into our heart how would living “a good life,” help us? You, will not be saved by not doing really, really evil things or simply living a “good life”. What, good would it be if we could hate the Lord and still go to Heaven? Why would we want to enter His presence if we never knew Him? We, should believe in Christ, accept Him and admit our sins do good and we will enter into His Kingdom with praise. What, would the result be if we could reject Jesus and still go to Heaven? We, would not be able to stand being in His presence and God would be pleased as “But without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6)”. So, we need to live with God in our hearts and lives, even though we sin God is loving and always forgiving us. When, we sin God knows are hearts we should be careful “grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Eph. 4:30”. We know that God will not forget our works, He knows when we love Him and He has always loved us (We love him, because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19). May the grace of God be with you, as you do good in Jesus name.
