Hope you had a great night. I had a lovely time last night at our Christmas carol. It is never too early to teach children, three of the children read scriptures I had thought them. I mean these are age 2-4 girls. They are a blessing. May they remain in the Lord all the days of their lives. Amen 🙏.
So last night just before I went to bed I heard a statement in a video blog, which we’ve all heard so many times. “Faith without works is dead”. That scripture can be found in
James 2:18-20, But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my[b] works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
What is FAITH? (According to wiki)
Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing; or the observance of an obligation from loyalty; or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement; or a belief not based on proof.
(According to scripture),
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Now What is Works?
It is a productive or operative activity and the result of exertion, labor, or activity; a deed or performance.
A young lady asked me during the week as a new married couple and we don’t have much , am from a wealthy home and the man wasn’t. How do I keep hope?
You see the lady believed in him. They lived in one bedroom apartment for a long time with no assurance of things getting better.
She showed faith by believing in him and believing God will make a way. So now check out what her works should be, which is as equally as important. As we know faith without Works is dead. Faith is the key to pleasing God. We need faith first to come to God and believe and to trust him for our supplication.
2.) Encouraged her man
3.) Also work hard towards the growth of the family.
When we are going tribulations in marriage we need both Faith and Works together. You can’t sit there as a so called 21century woman, filled with pride. Rise up and be the help meet that you are.
Faith is the key to pleasing God. Ask your self am I pleasing God? Because you are not adding the Works of physical support to help your mate. Since Works is important in our faith to please God, what are your Works to ensure the growth of your family, financially, spiritually e.t.c.
Your continued faith is the kind that causes us to seek God daily, which offers the promise of a dynamic, rewarding walk with God.
It is different if your man is lazy, even if thats the case you can still help him.
Add some works to you faith and see the wonders God will do in your household. Not married yet FREEZE IT!
