17 Even so faith, if it is not accompanied with works, is dead, by itself.
24 You see then how a man is justified by works, and not only by faith.5 [A man is not justified by works of the law; instead a man is justified by works of obedience to God's voice, which works are evidence of operational faith. Our faith must motivate us to seek to hear God's voice, to believe his words to be true, and then our faith must energize us to perform works commanded that we hear him speak to us . Otherwise our faith is the lip service of the hypocrites.]
|James 2:26 |
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is also dead. [Paul said: glory, honor, and peace, are to every man who works good. Rom 2:10.]
