    Contrast #4 – Faith vs Works – Chris Payne
    Series: Contrast
    Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
    Hebrews 11:6 - And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, Go in peace, keep warm and well fed, but do nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, You have faith, I have deeds. Show me your faith without deeds and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that -and shudder. You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend. You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.
    Galatians 6:9 - Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
    Malachi 1:10 - “Oh, that one of you would shut the temple doors, so that you would not light useless fires on my altar! I am not pleased with you”, Says the Lord Almighty.
    Zechariah 7:8-10 - This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.'
    Matthew 25:40 - “Truly I tell you, you whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
    Our faith is about hearing what Jesus is saying and doing it.
    Ephesians 2:8-10 - For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
    The faith of God means to believe what God believes.
