Our Story With God, Episode 47: Faith & Action

Those who follow Christ should live up to the standard that He provided.  According to Scripture, however, the morality we display does not factor into our salvation.  Hebrews 6 speaks of turning away from "dead works" and inheriting God's promises through "faith and perseverance".  James reminds us that faith is shown by the works we do.  When we recognize all that God has done for us, we will be spurred into action.  It does us no good (to say nothing of the effect on those around us) to claim that we rely on Jesus until we are willing to leap into His arms in full dependence and live according to His guidance.
