It is Faith

We learn in the Bible in many passages that we are justified by faith and not works.¬†“Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses. Acts 13:38-39”¬†Romans 5:1 makes it clear that we are “justified through faith”. The idea of justification by faith does not go against James which tells us that true faith produces works, it is not those works that save us or need to be done to be saved. Those good works are the fruits of the spirit done by God and not us. If we try to obtain salvation through works we are denying the full power of God’s sacrifice. Yes, faith without works is dead but works are done out of love for God. We do not see a list of works in the Bible that need to be done to be saved. The atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins is enough, it was finished and paid for on that Friday on the cross. May we all trust fully in God as the only way to be saved and not in our deeds. Amen
