The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Faith Which Saves Will Do More Than Save

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26 (KJV)
Faith is the key, the heart, the soul, the life, the essence of salvation. Salvation does not come through baptism, confirmation, ceremony, joining the church, turning over a new leaf, doing the best you can, living a good life, being honest and upright. Salvation comes by faith alone. Faith that saves is ours only by hearing the Word of God, and faith which is living faith–saving faith–does not abide alone. Faith which saves will do more than save. Fire which smokes, burns as well as produces smoke. Faith which saves produces works–the work of love. The salvation we enjoy through faith is without works–but faith which does not work is dead. “For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead” James 2:26 (NASB).
