Cameron finished last week with these two questions and they have been on my mind all this week. 1.) Did we put our faith in Christ’s work on the cross? The Lord God took the man and placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and watch over it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat…
One of the primary purposes of the Lord’s supper is to remember Christ. This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me. This cup is the new covenant in my blood.

In this world we’re bombarded with temptation to focus on ourselves. Our status, popularity, career, authority, position, wealth, security, time, race, nationality, sexuality, feelings, thoughts, identity. All of these used by Satan to bring our focus off of Jesus and onto ourselves. Religious Leaders were bringing a works-based teaching into the Philippian church. Match this with a Philippian culture striving for status and position, it was a recipe for disaster. Paul addresses the problem.

James chapter 2 has a well known teaching about showing our faith by our works.

The bond between Faith and Good Works is inseparable. While we are saved by grace through faith alone, it is a true faith that is demonstrated by obedience to Jesus. The LORD knows those who are His. He is not deceived by our facades. do not be deceived, our Messiah Jesus has saved us for good works that we should walk in them! These thoughts were shared by Davy Waldman at Refuge TLH in Tallahassee, FL on Sunday, November 14, 2021.
