"...My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it." - Luke 8 V21
"But be doers of the word, and not just hearers only, deceiving yourselves." - James 1 V22
Now the scripture teaches us that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and not of works, lest any man should boast. But the outcome of salvation is to serve the Lord and live in fellowship with the Lord every day and every night. If we say we follow Christ, but do not serve Him, what kind of "following" is that? Jesus said, the tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down. We cannot earn our way to heaven but when God saves us, we become His and thereafter we ought to live our lives for Him. Let us examine our hearts and make sure we are right with God and we are living for His glory. Submit to the Lord and let the Lord work in you and lead you. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
