CHAPTER 2


FAITH VS WORKS

FAITH VS WORKS STUDY ON FAITH VS WORKS VERSES WITH FAITH VS WORKS MESSAGE TO DISCOVER FAITH VS WORKS TRUTH
 

          Itís certainly a pleasure to welcome you back again to Daily Bread. As you may remember in the first chapter of this letter from Paul, he was showing us how to count our spiritual blessings. In this second chapter, Paul explains even more about these heavenly blessings that God has gifted us with so letís take a look.

           He has given you life, who were dead in trespasses and sins, where in time past, you walked according to the path of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (the devil), which is the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience. With them we also lived in the desires of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, just as others.

          This reminds me of something. Thereís a time in everyoneís life, when you think you know everything. And then, lo and behold (Did you ever realize these are Bible words which mean look and see? Just thought Iíd sneak a little Daily Bread Crumb in on ya!), a time comes when you look back and realize how terribly wrong you were about that. And then it happens again. And again. And again, again, again, etc. Even when you concede to the fact that you canít possibly know everything, you start to thinking that you know all the necessary and important stuff anyway. And then you find out you were wrong about that too. Over and over again. So, when you meet someone who hasnít found TRUTH yet (children of disobedience), give them a break, because they just havenít caught up with you yet, and they still know everything. We all had our time in the dark, living worldly. Who are we to judge those who arenít fortunate enough to have had GOD GIVE them the TRUTH yet? Arenít we glad that God allowed us the time to choose when we were ready to come out of the darkness into the light?

FAITH VS WORKS LESSON WITH FAITH VS WORKS EXPLANATION

          But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great Love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, made us alive together with Christ (by whose Grace you are saved), and has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His Grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

          For by Grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves (not from any of your own doing), it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast (be proud). Because we are His workmanship (creation), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has before prepared that we should walk in them.

          Thereís a key word here to remember because I know it can be confusing about the Faith vs. works thing. That word is GRACE. Paul just said by Grace youíre saved through Faith, not of works. And then in the very next sentence he said that we are created in Christ for good works. Well, that sounds pretty contradicting, but when you think about it, when youíre reborn, and you become one with Christ, naturally, good works are within you. They are effortless. They are second nature so to speak. You donít have to plan them or try to do good things, they are part of you. You donít have to work to do the good works that you were created to do.

          Do remember, that you in time past, being Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision (non-Jewish) by those who are called the Circumcision (Jewish) in the flesh made by hands, that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.

          But now in Christ Jesus, you who sometimes were far off are made near by the blood of Christ. For He is our Peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, for to make in Himself out of two, one new man, so making peace, and that He might reconcile both to God in one body by the Cross, having slain the enmity by it, and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were near.

FAITH VS WORKS INFORMATION WITH FAITH VS WORKS MEANING

          For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household (family) of God, and are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together grows to an Holy Temple in the Lord, in whom you also are built together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

          Access. Thatís quite an interesting and fitting word for what Paul is saying. It is the freedom, availability, and opportunity to be of God, whenever we want. Itís the freedom, availability, and opportunity to call on Him, to talk to Him, to praise Him, to thank Him, to use the power that He bestows on you through the Holy Spirit, to depend on Him, to be in His presence, to rely on Him, to know Him. Itís all yours. Do these sound like more spiritual blessings to you?

          Join us again next time, when we look into more of this wonderful letter from Paul as he takes us into an even clearer understanding of the access that we enjoy to our Father. Paul calls this the mystery of Christ in the next chapter. You donít want to miss it right here at Daily Bread.
