Faith with Works

14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Read James 2. It clearly exemplifies faith whom everybody say they have. It is likened to someone who
1. says I believe exercise is good for me, but does nothing about it.
2. who claims he loves somebody, but the life does not show it.
3. I have faith in the doctor, yet after consulting, reject the instructions and advises.
The latter actions is the cause and effect of the faith. But you don’t intentionally WORK and claim WORK as the way to God. It is the faith in Jesus. The Faith will result in works.

A common phrase, "many people SAY they care, few SHOW they care" If you believe it, you will show it naturally.

That is work exemplified manifested from the faith within.
Many people say they believe in God, and HIS WORK through his Son, Jesus. Yet the life shows otherwise, claiming to work their way to God. Faith without works is dead…. it literally means, if you claim you have faith, and your work and life does not manifest from it, the faith is dead.

Our God is a jealous God. There is only ONE. Over and over again, God the Father says listen to the Son whom he is well pleased. Listen. Jesus says, "If you love me, keep my commandments." Jn 14:15

What is more important to you? The word of men? Or the word of God through the Bible? The bible says "Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

The last two words of the verse… THROUGH HIM. Through Who? Through Jesus. No one else. Give thanks to God the Father through Jesus. What does it mean? It means 100% thanks, praise, intercession, everything…. in the NAME OF JESUS. No One else.

May Christ be glorified and exemplified in our lives, daily. To God be the glory.
