Faithful Works

Faith without works is dead. Our actions are a physical representation of our belief in God's word. The Bible teaches us that we are saved by grace through faith, but it also tells us that our faith should inspire us to do good works. In this blog, we will explore 10 bible verses about faithful works that will inspire and encourage us to put our faith into action.


James 2:17 – "So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead." This verse highlights the importance of works in our faith. Our actions are a reflection of our belief and faith in God's word.


Ephesians 2:10 – "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." This verse reminds us that we were created to do good works. God has already ordained good works for us to do, and it is up to us to walk in them.


Galatians 5:6 – "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love." Faith and love are interconnected. Our faith should inspire us to love others and do good works for them.


Hebrews 6:10 – "For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do." God does not overlook the good works that we do for His name. He sees them and is pleased with them.


James 1:22 – "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." It is not enough to simply read and hear God's word; we must put it into action and do what it says.


Titus 3:8 – "The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people." Good works are profitable and excellent for people. Our good works can benefit both ourselves and others.


Romans 12:11 – "Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord." We are called to serve the Lord with zeal and fervor. Our good works are a part of our service to Him.


Matthew 5:16 – "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Our good works are a testimony of our faith and can bring glory to God.


1 Corinthians 3:8 – "He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor." Our good works may not always bring immediate rewards, but we will be rewarded for them one day.


Colossians 3:23 – "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." Our good works should be done for the Lord and not for our own gain or recognition.


Faithful works are an important part of our Christian walk. Our faith should inspire us to do good works that reflect God's love and bring glory to Him. The Bible gives us many verses that encourage us to do good works, and it is up to us to put them into action. Let us strive to be doers of the word and serve the Lord with zeal and fervor. May God bless us as we seek to do His will and walk in the good works that He has prepared for us to do.
