THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
When our son was about 2 years old, he found a paper clip
in my home office.
Later, Ann noticed he was trying to insert the paper clip in the
wall plug-in socket!
She took the paper clip away, and told him,
"No! No! That will BURN you!"
He went to his room to play.
Soon, we heard, "ZZZZZZT! OWWW!!"
He had gone into my office again, got another paper clip,
and this time successfully inserted it into a wall socket!
For as the body without the spirit is dead,
so faith without works is dead also.
LIGHT from the WORD!
Works for Christ, alone, cannot deliver the soul, because
works cannot earn faith.
Works, for Christ, are an outward expression of inward faith.
One of the consequences of putting a paper clip into a plug-in
socket is to receive an electric shock.
That shock will make one SHOW the entrance and work of the
electricity in the body!
One of the consequences of plugging into Jesus through surrender
to Him as Lord is to receive the electrifying work of His Holy
Spirit in and through our souls.
And His Holy Spirit NEVER ceases to work!
Therefore, "faith without works is DEAD."
There can be no inward faith without outward expression!
STAY plugged into God's socket of FAITH!
Let your faith in Christ EXPRESS itself to others!
