Lets turn the page and read the next chapter:
So, Is Salvation based on works? Well, what kind of works? Ceremonies, ritualistic actions? Or is faith in its own way, action? If God gives you a prompting, or through his word (The Bible) declares a commandment to obey; and you DO NOT act on it... is that faith? If you are a saved Christian, you know that salvation is not based on works. It is based on Grace. Ephesians 1:7 "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace." Romans 3:23-24 2
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Even as I write this, I know that God is at work in my life. He knows my heart (Samuel 16:7). He is at work in my life because I have a desire. I thank God for helping me find the courage and action to take.
Today, I choose action. Thank you Jesus, Amen
