Jesus, Is Our Pattern For Life
This verse causes some Christians some concern. We fear that if we do not demonstrate good works in our life, our faith is dead - which we interpret to mean that we have lost our eternal salvation. However, when the whole council of God is sought, it is very evident this position conflicts with the vast majority of Scripture which clearly teaches that we are saved by grace, through faith - and not by works lest anyone should boast.
May we follow in the path of spiritual Christians and never forget that the Lord Jesus, is our pattern for life. Jesus is the One believers are instructed to follow. Live by faith and carry out good works by faith so that we demonstrate a living faith to the glory of God.
Let's all live and work the works of God in HIS power and for HIS glory, for the rest of our days.
In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus and the example He set in His life of a Man Who fulfilled the redemptive work that You had prepared for Him to do, willingly and in the power of the Holy Spirit. We pray that we may work the works of God and demonstrate a living faith that honors Your holy name. We pray that we will not try to carry out dead works in our own strength but rather that we will demonstrate a living faith using Jesus as the pattern for our Christian walk. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
