Christmas Is for Giving

Hebrews 2:9-10

A good deal of our time in the last few weeks before Christmas is been spent in the selecting and the giving of gifts to one another. Now in some instances we just try to find something, no matter what, that we can give to another person. But so very often we try to look for what we think would be the perfect gift for them.

Faith

Hebrews 11:1-6

Everything that requires action to some degree in one way or another involves faith. So that means that faith is about the most important thing in the world. Almost every second of every minute of every day of our lives, we exercise faith in some way. Without faith there could be no business because we have to trust one anoth...

Things Not Shaken

Hebrews 12:27-29

Historians are at one point in solemn agreement: nothing that we see can last. There is no permanence in the physical or the material. The earth changes her garb, nations rise and fall, governments come and go. The dust of yesterday’s civilization is hardly settled before we begin to see the rubble of today.

Today's Devotional

On Faith and Works

One of the common denominators of all world religions except Christianity is that they do not correlate faith and works. In Christianity there is the closest correlation between them. In fact the Bible says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” (James 2:26).

The Bible is clear: a workless faith is worthless faith. 

Faith and works must be balanced in true religion. Faith in God and commitment to Jesus Christ are foundational. No man becomes a Christian merely by being good. Faith is the soil from which good works must grow. Real Christian faith always brings forth the fruit of good works. The true follower of Christ first believes, then he serves. As Dr. Perry Webb, former pastor of the First Baptist Church of San Antonio, once said, “A religion that does not look out and reach out and help out is washed out.”

Let us then put our faith into action and thus prove to all the world that it is not dead.
