INTRODUCTION

In this study, our focus shall be on faith that works. Therefore, we shall, for the sake of today’s lesson, define faith as the “work of righteousness.”

 

 

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. FAITH THAT WORKS
2. SOME WORKS OF FAITH

 

 

 

FAITH THAT WORKS
Our faith in the Lord Jesus has brought to us a common salvation through our confession – Rom. 10:9.

This is the start of our relationship with Him. He first did something for us through our faith in Him. Then, we too should reciprocate by doing something for Him. We can put faith into action in the following ways:
i. We can rise for the salvation of others. This can be done through a daily testimony of Christ – Titus 2:11.
ii. Our faith in the all-sufficient God can propel us to share our food with the poor and provide clothing for the naked, particularly the believers – Jam. 2:14-16.
iii. Our faith in the prayer-answering Saviour will move us from selfish and self-centred prayers to fervent prayers for the sick, destitute, government, nations and the church of God universal – Jam. 5:14-19; 1 Tim. 2:1-5.
iv. Through our faith in God, we can be more submissive to Him in various ministerial assignments – Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher – Eph. 4:11.
v. Through our faith in Him, believers can perform signs and wonders. We can cast out devils – Mk. 16:17– loose the bands of wickedness, undo heavy burdens, deliver the oppressed and break every yoke – Is. 58:6.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SOME WORKS OF FAITH
A living faith produces certain results that could be called the works of faith because faith without works is dead. These works include ability to resist the devil and to overcome the world. Living faith also produces good report i.e. has a positive perception of circumstance. Saints overcome all difficulties by a living faith. In fact, anything that is not of faith is sin. Jam. 2:21-25; Gal. 2:20; Rom. 11:20; 2 Cor. 1:24; 1 Pt. 5:9; Eph. 6:16; Heb.  11:2; Mt. 17:20; Rom. 14:23.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
The kingdom of God does not permit idleness. It requires everyone to work out his or her salvation with fear and trembling. It is by doing this that we can please the One who chose us. Is your faith evidenced by works?
