Living Faith

July 29, 2012  — 

Though doing good works is emphasized throughout James, it is crucial to remember that works are to complement our faith as an outpouring of God moving in our lives, not to ensure our salvation, which comes through grace alone. God calls us to do good works out of the grace He freely gives us, not with any strings attached or condemnation if we fail, but to bring Him glory as we live in obedience to His Word. God places within us a desire for good works as Jesus and the cross empower and anoint us to carry them out.

Scripture: James 2
