Saved by Faith, Rewarded by Faithfulness — 3 Comments

  1. Very well said, Pastor William! When I think of faith and works, I think of how Romans 10:17 tells us how faith comes about by hearing God’s Word, and then of how Jesus states in John 5:39 the scriptures testify of Him who gives eternal life. And in John 6 He even likens it to eating His flesh, for He was the bread of heaven. (And I can share a lot more on that subject.) So this is how we build our faith, and Jesus fulfills Hebrews 8:10 by writing His law of love upon our hearts, and fulfills the picture that He gave to us in John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.”

    I will now, in another comment below, share something I was just led to read, that expounds upon how the works come about, and why they are so important.
