Faith works

Faith works
… but does it always?

The Bible tells us that,
      … faith is the substance of things hoped for – Heb. 11:1
      … without faith it is impossible to please God – Heb. 11:6

So obviously faith does work,
Yet the Apostle James wrote
      Thus also faith by itself,
      if it does not have works, is dead – James 2:17

Does that mean that I must do something to get faith to work?
No, not at all!
But, if what you are doing is not bringing anything,
… it is obviously NOT faith.

So what should I do?
      looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
      Heb 12:2

Get to know Jesus personally, and hear Him for your life,
… as Jesus Himself said,

      If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
      you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
      John 15:7

That is how faith works
… in Jesus and in what Jesus has done, for you.
That is the faith that pleases God, and that He rewards

      But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
      for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
      and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
      Heb 11:6
