James 1: 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. As I was reading this it dawned on me why we do works. We don’t do works to earn our salvation, but to show our faith.
The Bible encourages us to take care of each other. To lift each other up. When we accept Jesus as our savior, the desire to become more like him. This is why we do good works.
But how do I lift someone else up? How do I have the strength? Trust God. When you hear of someone in need, do what you can to help.
