“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26
While good works don’t earn salvation, non-believers can do good works, and believers sometimes do evil works, the works of a believer reflect faith. When we are not doing good works we show that our faith is at least weak, if not dead.
How can we better show our faith? Love God! If our works are done in love of Jesus they will certainly be good. -PB
