Faith Working By Love
This week's message is Faith Working By Love. Choose your connection speed to listen: dialup - broadband - transcript
FAITH + WORKS = ?
We know that we are saved by grace through faith, and not of ourselves, it is the gift of God; not of works lest any one should boast. But what about the Scriptures that seem to say we must do this or that to receive salvation, such as baptism?
Today California Condor brings us a Scripture-packed message explaining the relationship between faith and works, and shows us clearly how Faith Works by Love.

Faith Without Works
James 2:17 tells us that "Faith without works is dead." Yes, we are saved by faith in Jesus. But what happens after that? Scripture tells us that the righteous person lives by faith. And we cannot live by something that's dead.
In the parable of the sheep and the goats, Jesus pointed out the importance of a living faith, one that has feet and hands and is ready to use them to help those in need. Whether that need is physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual, whatever we do or don't do to even the least in society's measure, we do or don't do to Him.
Just as we neglect Jesus when we neglect the needs of others, we also minister to Jesus when we show love in action to those he came to seek and to save. Which is all of us. For we all were lost, and without Jesus we are all hopeless. And since from whom much is given much is required, we who have received the atoning blood of the Lamb and his complete forgiveness and reconciliation to God certainly cannot keep it to ourselves.
Jesus commanded us to go into every nook and cranny, every part of the earth, proclaiming the Good News to everyone. Whatever nook or cranny God has called you to reach, do so with the passion and love of someone who has been forgiven, redeemed from the pit, and rescued from hell and brought into life.
Currently there are more than 11,686,393 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
