Daily Passage on Good Works: 2 Corinthians 7:1

Day 20

2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Purpose of These Posts

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. I want to show that exhortations to good works, and even warnings about will happen if we do not do good works, are laced throughout every one of the apostles writings.

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. I don’t post my regular posts daily, but I do post several times per week.

    I can see how this lady’s message would inspire people. I cannot see how it resembles Jesus’ message.
