Wrong Things - Saturday, July 20th 2013

Romans 4:1-2

"What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God."
NKJV

There is absolutely no work that we can do to earn our salvation. If there was, we would glorify the work and not God. Think about it. We all are quick to place our faith in the wrong things. We place our faith in jobs, money and family. Suddenly, those things become our priority instead of the very God who gave us those things.

James 2:14 "Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone." NLT

Although salvation is not earned, works are a good indicator of what you believe. Friend, if you say you are a Christian but there is no fruit demonstrating it, then you need to take a serious look at your priorities.

Life Lesson: Good works are not the basis for salvation but are the fruit of salvation.

Dear Father,
Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You that it's not what I do that affords me salvation, but it is faith in Jesus that does. I pray that You will help me to honestly look at my life and see if my works demonstrate my faith. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
