Galatians 6:7-10: Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to the flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not be weary in doing good, for we will reap in due season, if we don’t give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let’s do what is good toward all men, and especially toward those who are of the household of faith.
Explanation of Purpose:
I am conducting an experiment. I am going to post one verse or passage a day for as long as I can that addresses works for the Christian. I’m guessing I can keep it up for at least six months. I won’t stretch any passages out by dividing them into individual verses. If a whole passage is discussing works, I’ll use the whole passage that day.
I am doing this because “works” has become a taboo word in many Christian circles. Every time it is used, an apology must be given, and someone must explain that we are not saved by works. This happens despite the fact that James said that we are “justified by works” without any apology or explanation. If he can violate our social taboos, we should, too.
These will be short, so they’re not in place of regular posts. If you entered on this blog’s home page, make sure you look at the second post, too, which is probably more important.
