Working Together

 

Faith without works
is not alive

the two must be
together

just as Abraham
offered his son

Isaac
upon the altar.

**********

Lord Jesus, I desire the faith to not only believe, but to act on those beliefs.

**********

“Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?”

“Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?”

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

James 2:21,22,26 NKJV

No Other Foundation

 

You are my sure
foundation

the only one I can
build upon

with works that
are worthy

of God’s Holy
Son.

**********

You are with me as a sure foundation.

**********

“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

“Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,”

“each one’s work will become manifest; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.”

1 Corinthians 3:11,12,13 NKJV

Your Works Are Truth

 

All honor and glory
to You, O Lord

whose works
are always truth

Your dominion is pure
Your ways are justice

and all pride
You will undo.

**********

You establish Your rule and dominion .

“Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways are justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to abase.” Daniel 4:37 NKJV

Saying vs. Doing

“The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses seat.  Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works, for they say and do not do.”  Matthew 23:2-3

We have rules, regulations and laws to observe within our governments, churches, workplaces, marriages and families.

Oh Lord, help us do what we must, knowing all is in Your sight. And here is a simple poem . . .

It’s All Good

Some don’t say what they mean
or mean what they say
or do what they
tell us to do.
But Jesus will come
and set all things right
letting His truth
be our delight.
