I want the works I have done to speak well for me. Not that I am saved by works but by grace through faith. Nevertheless, my salvation came with responsibilities and if God be my Strength, I plan to do all that He has put in my heart and hands to do. When my turn comes for my deeds to take the witness stand, I want my prosecutors to say, CASE DISMISSED, because my deeds have testified on behalf of the Defendant.
Therefore, who can lay charge to God’s elect when He has justified me? Won’t God bring about justice for those who love Him and obey His Word? Will He not vindicate me against the enemy who brings charges against me? Surely my accusers will face me and bring railing accusations against me, but my hands will be clean before God of any man’s blood.
Do what God has called you to and remain consistent no matter how hard the press. You already have the grace to stand, we just need to do it.
James 2:18, “Yea, a man may say, You have faith, and I have works: show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”
James 3:13, ” Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.”
Let our works speak!”
